Wada approves prohibited drug list.

The committee has added several more banned substances to the 2011 document

Dubai The World Anti-Doping Agency's Executive Committee has approved the List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (list) for 2011.

The new list that will be made official and published by October 1, 2010, will be made effective from January 1, 2011.

The prohibited list is one of the cornerstones of the harmonized fight against doping in sports throughout the world.

It specifies substances and methods prohibited in sport and its implementation is mandatory for organisations that have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code.

The 2010 prohibited list that came into effect from January 1, 2010 consists of anabolic agents, peptide hormones, growth factors, Beta-2 agonists, hormone antagonists and modulators, diuretics and other masking agents, stimulants, narcotics and cannabinoids, among others.

Revision

The meeting held in Montreal last weekend has made further additions to the banned substances on the list, a copy of which will be available from October 1.

The annual revision of the list is a consultative process facilitated by Wada, beginning with the circulation of a draft list among stakeholders. Comments received are considered by Wada's List Expert Group, which then presents its conclusions to Wada's Health, Medical and Research Committee.

The committee submits its final recommendations to the Executive Committee, which discusses them and makes a final decision at its September meeting.
