World Anti-Doping Code 2007 Prohibited List
The World Anti-Doping Code 2007 Prohibited List is effective from 1 January 2007.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) reviews the Prohibited List every year to ensure the
details of the substances and methods prohibited in sport are consistent with scientific and
technological developments. Changes in 2007 Prohibited List include:
• Beta-2 agonists – Salbutamol
A Salbutamol concentration of greater than 1000 ng/ml will be considered an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (at this level Salbutamol will not be considered a Specified Substance). If an athlete sample reveals a concentration of greater than 1000 ng/ml and that athlete has an Abbreviated Therapeutic Use Exemption (ATUE), the athlete will need to prove that the level of Salbutamol is due to therapeutic use of inhaled Salbutamol. This applies to samples collected both In-Competition and Out-of Competition.
• Diuretics and other Masking Agents
Further explanation has been provided, with the additional wording – ‘and other substances with similar biological effect(s)
’ has been added to clarify that substances not listed as examples are also prohibited.
Additional examples of stimulants have been added to the list of prohibited substances.
Athletes are reminded that the Prohibited List includes examples of substances
prohibited; additional products with similar chemical structure or biological effect are also
prohibited. A product does not have to be listed by name to be prohibited.
To provide further guidance on the requirements of Therapeutic Use or Abbreviated
Therapeutic Use applications, additional examples of routes of administration for the use
of glucocorticosteroids have been included. A route of administration reference table for
the use of glucocorticosteroids is included in this issue of the Anti-Doping Update.

specified substance. Tuaminoheptane has been added as an example of a specified
