Therapeutic Use Exemptions

If the medication an Athlete is required to take to treat illnesses or conditions falls under the Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) may give that Athlete the authorization to Use the needed medications.

The criteria for granting a TUE are:

  • The athlete would experience significant health problems without taking the prohibited substance or method
  • The therapeutic use of the substance would not produce significant enhancement of performance, and
  • There is no reasonable therapeutic alternative to the use of the otherwise prohibited substance or method.

The process for an Athlete to apply for a TUE is described in the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemption and the Anti-Doping Rules of Cyprus, available under Related Documents.

For more information about TUEs you may contact us.

The Forms needed when an Athlete applies for a TUE are available under Related Documents as well as under Forms section.
