The WADA Prohibited List

The WADA Prohibited List is the International Standard that identifies the substances and methods prohibited in- and out-of-competition. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is responsible for the preparation and publication of the List, which it updates every year effective January 1.

The 2022 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods will go into effect on January 01, 2022.
