The list of banned substances and methods (Prohibited List
) is usually published annually by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and enters into force on 1st
January of each year. The Prohibited List is one of the international standards whose implementation is mandatory for all signatories of the WADA Program.
It is the responsibility of sportsmen and sportswomen to ensure that they consult the currently valid Prohibited List
and find out about the specific regulations of their authority.
Every year Antidoping Switzerland publishes the Prohibited List
in German and French that applies to Switzerland. A printed version of this list may be obtained free of charge from Antidoping Switzerland.
In addition to the Prohibited List, a list is available of all permitted, non-prescription medicines and drugs for the treatment of common illnesses in Switzerland.
