Anti-Doping

It is vital if you are competing at a national or international level you understand the rules and guidance surrounding anti-doping – both for humans and equines.

Updates to FEI Equine Prohibited Substances List and WADA Prohibited List for Human Athletes:

The 2020 updates to the FEI Equine Prohibited Substances List and the WADA Prohibited List for human athletes have been released and came into force on 01 January 2020.

It is essential that all athletes review any treatment they are currently taking (or consider taking) in order to ascertain whether it involves any substance or method prohibited on the new List, and apply for a TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) if necessary. 

At National level, please ensure you consult the BEF’s equine anti-doping and controlled medication rules, otherwise known as BEFAR, (which apply to all affiliated competitions at National level in the FEI disciplines), as well as the BEF Rulebook.

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

All information regarding International anti-doping regulations can also be found on the FEI website – this includes the FEI Prohibited Substances List (www.fei.org).
