The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has today published the 2024 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (List), which enters into force on 1 January 2024.
WADA calls on athletes, entourage and all stakeholders to note major modification concerning tramadol.
WADA has also published:
- the 2024 Summary of Major Modifications and Explanatory Notes as compared to the 2023 List; and
- the 2024 Monitoring Program, which includes substances that are not on the List, but that WADA wishes to monitor in order to detect potential patterns of misuse in sport.
The List is one of the eight International Standards that are mandatory for all Signatories of the World Anti-Doping Code(Code). It designates what substances and methods are prohibited both in- and out-of-competition and which substances are banned in particular sports.
All athletes, their entourage and all stakeholders are encouraged to acquaint themselves with the Summary of Major Modifications to avoid inadvertent use of substances and methods that are prohibited in sport for 2024.
