SUBSTANCES AND METHODS PROHIBITED AT ALL TIMES (IN- AND OUT-OF-COMPETITION)
Use of International Non-proprietary Names (INN)
With the assistance of the World Health Organisation, the nomenclature of some substances on the List has been updated to International Non-proprietary Names (INN). For ease of the reviewer the previous name has been included and no substance has been deleted.
S1. Anabolic Agents
• Changes were made to the definitions of “exogenous” and “endogenous” for purposes of clarification and accuracy.
S2. Peptide Hormones, Growth Factors and Related Substances
• Releasing factors are prohibited and that is made clear in points S2.2, S2.3 and S2.4. In addition other prohibited growth factors are listed separately.
S5. Diuretics and other Masking Agents
• Vasopressin V2 antagonists (vaptans) were added as an example of a diuretic subclass.
M1. Manipulation of Blood and Blood Components
• For the purpose of scientific accuracy, the term allogenic was introduced.
SUBSTANCES AND METHODS PROHIBITED IN-COMPETITION
• Some drugs that metabolize to amfetamine or methamfetamine have been reclassified because improved analytical techniques permit the identification of the administered drug and corresponding metabolites; MDMA and MDA are reclassified because they are now recognized as less likely to be used as doping agents; cathinone and its analogues (e.g. mephedrone, methedrone, α- pyrrolidinovalerophenone) and trimetazidine have been added as examples to reflect emerging patterns of drug use.
SUBSTANCES PROHIBITED IN PARTICULAR SPORTS
• Changes were made to the wording describing the blood alcohol threshold, in the interest of accuracy.
• “Aeronautic” has been replaced by “Air Sports” and “FITA” has been replaced by its new acronym “WA” (World Archery).
