WADA publishes 2015 Prohibited List
Following approval by the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Executive Committee on 20 September, the 2015 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods is now available.
The List will come into force on 1 January 2015, at the same time as the revised World Anti-Doping Code.
The List, which specifies substances and methods prohibited in sport, is a mandatory document for all organizations that have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code (Code).
The annual revision of the List is a highly-consultative process undertaken by WADA, and begins with circulation of a draft List amongst stakeholders. Comments are considered by WADA’s List Expert Group, which then presents its conclusions to WADA’s Health, Medical and Research Committee (HMRC).
Following this process, recommendations are then made to WADA’s Executive Committee, which discusses the proposals before making a final decision at its September meeting.
“One of WADA’s main roles is to be at the forefront of advances in anti-doping science, and to ensure that we are aware of any developments which might impact what should or shouldn’t be included on the List of Prohibited Substances and Methods,” said WADA President, Sir Craig Reedie.
“The process that leads to changes to the List is highly consultative, and involves the input of all stakeholders. The changes that have been made for the 2015 List will add greater clarity as we move forward into the next phase of anti-doping with the introduction of the revised Code.”
In addition to English, French and Spanish versions of the List, it is also possible to translate the List into other languages.
Stakeholders who wish to translate the List can do so by 3 November 2014 and send WADA the new version to be inserted in the mobile-friendly platforms at minimal cost.

ISSF New Rules
Shooting Australia has a strong view on drugs in sport and the Policy controlling this is the WADA compliant AISL - Anti-Doping Policy. The latest from ISSF re: ATUEs / TUE Changes / Declaration of Use
Note: that ISSF's anti doping policy does not include a mutual recognition clause. ISSF's anti doping policy overrules AISL's anti doping policy. International competitors who may be subject to ISSF rules of the conflict in conditions and that the ISSF anti doping policy does not include a mutual recognition clause but in fact requires that ISSF consider all TUE applications for all international athletes competing at ISSF events (clause 220.127.116.11).
