WADA’s 2022 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods Comes into Force

The International Wushu Federation (IWUF) reminds all national/ regional wushu federarions (NFs), all wushu athletes, coaches and all other stakeholders that The 2022 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (List); The 2022 Summary of Major Modifications and Explanatory Notes; and The 2022 Monitoring Program are entered into force on 1 January 2022.

The Prohibited List is usually published on an annual basis by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and approved by WADA’s Executive Committee (ExCo). The Prohibited List, which is one of the eight International Standards that are mandatory for all Signatories of the World Anti-Doping Code (Code), designates what substances and methods are prohibited both in- and out-of-competition. It is the responsibility of every athlete to check regularly that the substances and methods they use are not prohibited in sport.


Therefore, IWUF kindly ask wushu athletes, their entourage to review the Prohibited List carefully and to take particular note of this year’s modifications to avoid inadvertent use of substances and methods that are prohibited in wushu for 2022.
