WADA’s 2018 Prohibited List came into effect January 1, 2018

Athletes currently taking medications that appear on the list of banned substances as published in the Drug Classification Handbook must complete and return a Therapeutic Use Exemption Form to both Taekwondo Canada and CCES.  Through this process, you may be granted permission by the CCES to use this WADA prohibited substance or method during and out of competition. For more information, please visit the CCES Medical Exemption Page.

Certain athletes are required to be part of the Registered Testing Pool and must submit their Whereabouts to the CCES in order to remain compliant with anti-doping regulations.

To report an instance of doping, please visit the CCES' Report page.



What is WADA?

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was established in 1999 as an international independent agency composed and funded equally by the sport movement and governments of the world. Its key activities include scientific research, education, development of anti-doping capacities, and monitoring of the World Anti Doping Code (Code) – the document harmonizing anti-doping policies in all sports and all countries.
