Athletes are responsible for any prohibited substances that may be found in their sample. The CCES encourages athletes to verify the status of their medications using the following CCES resources:
• Global DRO (www.globaldro.com)
• CCES Substance Classification Booklet (www.cces.ca/en/substance)
• Email email@example.com
• Call the CCES Info Line at 1-800-672-7775
For prescribed substances that require a medical exemption, athletes subject to doping control should consult the CCES or their international federation to get complete information on the application process.
• The CCES Medical Exemption Wizard (www.cces.ca/mewizard) can help athletes find out if they need to apply in advance for a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) or be prepared for a medical review following doping control. The Wizard describes where and when to submit an application, and what to include in the medical file.
