The IAAF would like to remind all athletes, and their support personnel, that the 2017 Prohibited List will come into effect on 1 January 2017.  We strongly encourage you to be aware of the changes which have been made by WADA in advance of its introduction in the New Year.  Specifically, we recommend to you the four key links or pieces of information below:

2.       Read the WADA summary of modifications">here:

3.       Download the Prohibited List iPhone/iPad app">here (note: currently reflects the 2016 version until January.

4.       The IAAF also encourages all athletes to use resources available from their national anti-doping organisation for further information on the List, and to access useful tools like"> to check whether medications are permitted or prohibited.

In addition to the information above, the IAAF has provided a short summary of key additions and clarification to the List in 2017 which athletes should be aware of.  This information should not replace the need to access or refer to the full prohibited list.
