Therapeutic Use Exemption

The Therapeutic Use Exemption process is a means by which an athlete can obtain approval to use a prescribed prohibited substance or method for the treatment of a legitimate medical condition.

The way in which an equestrian athlete must apply varies according to the athlete’s status; whether they are competing nationally or internationally and whether or not they are a World Class-funded athlete.

If you have any queries, in the first instance, please contact your Member Body

When applying for a TUE, remember:

  • Your application will only be reviewed if it is accompanied by the necessary supporting medical evidence. Click here to view the WADA International Standard for TUEs for details of acceptable supporting medical evidence).
  • The information from your doctor/specialist must demonstrate that all permissible alternatives have been tried and have not been successful in treating your condition.
  • The substance or method for which you are applying for a TUE must not put you in danger when competing or training.
  • Sufficient time must be allowed for the TUE application to be received and reviewed.
  • Your TUE will have an expiry date.  Make a note of the date and ensure that you apply for a new TUE (if still required) in plenty of time.
  • An TUE granted by the FEI is acceptable for national level competitions, but not the other way around.

Further information on TUEs is available on the UKAD website: http://ukad.org.uk/medications-and-substances/about-TUE/ or the FEI Clean Sport website: http://inside.fei.org/fei/cleansport/humans/tues
