Athletes who belong to the TUE Pool as defined by Antidoping Switzerland require a prospective therapeutic use exemption (TUE). This means that a valid exemption must generally be obtained prior to the start of a therapy with a prohibited substance or method.
For participation in international competitions, the regulations of the relevant International Sports Federation must be observed. The International Sports Federation defines who is considered an International-Level Athlete and therefore also requires a prospective TUE. The TUE application must be submitted to the relevant International Sports Federation.
If an athlete meets both definitions, the regulations of the International Sports Federation prevail and the application shall be submitted to the International Sports Federation.
Athletes who are neither considered National-Level Athletes nor International-Level Athletes have the option of applying for a TUE retroactively.
