WADA publishes revised ISTI, ISTUE and TDSSA to come into force 1 January 2023

WADA publishes revised ISTI, ISTUE and TDSSA to come into force 1 January 2023

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published the revised International Standard for Testing and Investigations (ISTI), revised International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE) and version 8.0 of the Technical Document for Sport Specific Analysis (TDSSA) all to come into force 1 January 2023. 

The ISTI establishes mandatory standards for the process of testing athletes through sample collection and also mandatory standards for the conduct of investigations into possible Anti-Doping Rule Violations. 

The ISTUE provides the process for applying for and recognising athlete Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE’s) which can be granted when an athlete needs to use a substance or method that is specifically included on WADA’s List of Prohibited Substances and Methods due to an ongoing medical condition. 

The TDSSA is intended to ensure that the Prohibited Substances and/or Prohibited Methods within the scope of the TDSSA are subject to an appropriate and consistent minimum level of analysis by all ADOs that conduct testing in those sports or disciplines deemed at risk.
