If ASDMAC approves the Therapeutic Use Exemption application a Therapeutic Use Exemption certificate will be provided to the athlete, with copies sent to the athlete’s doctor and the athlete’s relevant sporting administration body.

Therapeutic Use Exemptions last for different lengths of time depending on the substance, from a number of weeks to a number of years. It is your responsibility to check the expiry date and apply for a renewal if you are still taking the medication.
