Therapeutic exepmtions

General Guidelines Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

We would like to kindly remind you that if you need to take any medication/treatment which is on WADA’s Prohibited List, you shall submit a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) application to your National Anti-Doping Organization or directly to FIAS if the athlete holds the FIAS license and participate at the international SAMBO events. Please find below the most important information related to TUE:

  • If the International Athlete does not already have a TUE granted by his/her National Anti-Doping Organisation (NADO), she/he may apply directly to the FIAS.
  • If the Athlete already has a TUE granted for national-level competition by his/her NADO, that TUE is automatically valid for international-level competition and it is not necessary to apply to the FIAS for the recognition. Nevertheless, this TUE has to be submitted to FIAS before the event.
  • TUE applications are sent to the FIAS (anti-doping@sambo-fias.com) by the Athlete or through the Athlete's National Federation no less than 30 days before approval is needed (i.e. competition). If this is not possible, the urgent basis of the application should be indicated.
  • Please note that from 1st of January 2015 based on FIAS Anti-Doping Rules we do not accept the retroactive TUE applications except in the cases mentioned in article 4.3 of the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE).
  • The initiative of renewal of a granted TUE is under the athlete’s responsibility!
