TUE



If you have a medical condition that requires Use of a medication or other product containing a substance or method that is on the 2018 Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) is required. A TUE permits you to use the prohibited medication or method without committing an Anti-Doping Rule Violation, providing that all such use is in accordance with the conditions of the TUE.

TUEs are required for events covered by the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme, including:

  • Grand Slam tournaments

  • Davis Cup, Fed Cup and Hopman Cup

  • Olympic Tennis Event, the Paralympic Tennis Event, other IOC-recognised International Events

  • WTA tournaments and season-end championships

  • ATP World Tour tournaments and ATP World Tour Finals

  • ATP Challenger Tour tournaments

  • ITF Pro Circuit tournaments

  • ITF Juniors events and ITF Seniors events

  • ITF Wheelchair events

  • ITF Beach Tennis Tour events.

If you are unsure whether you require a TUE or would like to check whether a supplement or medication contains a prohibited substance; please download and complete a 'Product Information Request Form' from the related links below. The completed form should then be sent to IDTM using one of the following methods:

Introduction of a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) Portal

From 1 January, all TUE applications must be completed using the new Tennis Anti-Doping Programme Portal. An account must be created in order to submit an application and all accounts are subject to verification. Players are invited to create an account (which is a once-only process) as soon as possible, as this will help to minimise any delays in the processing of subsequent applications. Players who are planning to apply for a TUE are encouraged to ask their physicians to go to https://tennis.idtm.se and register for an account.
