WHO SHOULD YOU APPLY TO AND WHEN
You must understand which body you should make a request to, and when to submit an application.
Remember, as an athlete, you are solely responsible for whatever is in your body at all times.
When you should apply
You should send your application in advance, as soon as the need arises.
For substances prohibited in-competition only, you should apply for a TUE at least 30 days before your next competition.
Each TUE is only valid for a specific duration, at the end of which it expires automatically. Should you need to continue to use the prohibited substance or method, it is your responsibility to submit a new application with updated medical information ahead of the expiry date.
Make sure there is sufficient time for a decision to be made prior to the expiry of your existing TUE.
