Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs)

As an athlete, you may have an illness or medical condition that requires a particular medication. If this medication contains a substance or requires an administration method that is on the List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (List), you may apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). A TUE allows you to use the medication or method as it will not afford you a competitive advantage, but rather ensure you can compete in a proper state of health.

A TUE ensures that athletes can be treated for medical conditions – even if the treatment involves using a prohibited substance or method – while avoiding the risk of being sanctioned.

 EGY-NADO can grant a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) in these situations in accordance with the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE). The TUE application process is comprehensive and designed to balance the need to provide athletes with access to critical medicines while protecting the rights of clean athletes to complete in an equal playing field.

The TUEs awarded by EGY-NADO TUEC are only valid for national competition and out-of-competition testing.

ISTUE is the reference standard for the TUE application process of the Egyptian Anti-Doping Organization (EGY-NADO)
