Information required when applying for a TUE

It is important that your doctor does not only fill in the TUE form. Additional information is required and this should be noted carefully and included with the form.

Full details can be found on the WADA (World Anti-Doping Authority) website, but note that section 8.9 states:

The application shall include a comprehensive medical history and the results of all examinations, laboratory investigations and imaging studies relevant to the application. The arguments related to the diagnosis and treatment, as well as duration of validity, should be guided by the WADA “Medical Information to Support the Decisions of TUECs”. The links to documents relating to specific conditions are on the right hand side of this page.

In the Veldhoven Bulletins, the WBF Medical Officer published an article concerning the Anti-doping regulations in Bridge, which you can read by clicking here.

It has been noted that many bridge players send in TUEs for conditions relating to High Blood Pressure. There is also specific information about this on the WADA site – click here to download the document.

It would be best if you print the Medical Information page and any document on that page relating to your personal medical condition, and take them to your Doctor when applying for a TUE so that he or she can provide the correct and full information needed at the time you apply.
