Ethics in Sports, the Way of the Winner




Under the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) — the document harmonizing anti-doping policies in all sports and all countries — WADA has an obligation to coordinate anti-doping activities and to provide a mechanism to assist stakeholders with their implementation of the Code. The Anti-Doping Administration & Management System (ADAMS) was developed for this purpose. It is a Web-based database management system that simplifies the daily activities of all stakeholders and athletes involved in the anti-doping system. More info here. To create your account, please contact Lieutenant-Commander (Navy) Osvaldo Raimundo Pinheiro de Souza.

CISM Therapeutic USE Exemption (TUE)

Athletes are responsible for everything they ingest – food, drink, vitamins and other food supplements or medications.

Players may become ill or have conditions that require them to take medications. If an athlete is required to take medications and the medications contain substances which are on the WADA Prohibited List, the athlete must apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE).

This may give that athlete the authorization to take the medications that he/she requires.

Before taking any medication that contains a prohibited substance, the athlete must complete the TUE application process and be granted the TUE.



If you participate in tournaments organized by the CISM, you are considered as an International-Level Athlete and you should file your TUE requests with the CISM by using the form below (TUE Application Form)



CISM automatically recognizes TUEs from other anti-doping organizations. However, CISM will still review the TUE and might ask the player for further information.

Therefore, a player who has a valid TUE does not need to submit a new request to the BWF for the same substance.
