What is a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)?

Athletes, like all people, may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medications or undergo procedures. If the medication or method an athlete is required to take to treat an illness or condition happens to fall on the WADA Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) may give that athlete the authorization to take a substance or use a method that is prohibited.

Athletes with medical conditions competing in IWUF and continental competitions must obtain a TUE from the FIVB regardless of whether they have previously received a TUE at the national level. The application for a TUE must be made as soon as possible (in case of an Athlete in the Registered Testing Pool, this would be when he/she is first notified of his/her inclusion in the pool) and no later than 30 days before the Athlete’s participation in the event. To obtain a TUE, fill out the TUE Application Form in print or type and send it to the  enclosing all relevant medical files.
