The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has released the World Anti-Doping Code 2011 Prohibited List which will come into effect on 1 January 2011.
There are some very important changes that athletes and support personnel need to be aware of including:
- the addition of a new section on "non-approved substances"
- the removal of platelet-derived preparations (commonly referred to as PRP)
- removal of the obligation for athletes to file a Declaration of Use for specific substances that are not prohibited
- a modification to the classification of methylhexanamine.
