The big changes 2021

The Prohibited List is updated annually by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and identifies the substances and methods that are banned primarily for their potential to enhance performance in sport or their masking potential.

A new Prohibited List will come into effect on January 1, 2021. The new list contains several news that are important for athletes, their doctors, other support persons and sports officials to be aware of:

Partially allowed substances

Inhalation VILANTEROL is allowed​​ when up to 25 micrograms are inhaled over a 24 hour period (Class S3: Beta-2 agonists).
