Information Regarding HUMAN Drug Testing

Please be reminded that when you are competing under FEI rules, you (the human athlete) are subject to in-competition drug testing at the event. It is your responsibility to know if you are taking any medications on the Prohibited Substance List. Click HERE to watch short video from the FEI regarding Clean Sport for both athletes and horses.

  • Globaldro – what is it?
  • Globaldro stands for Global Drug Reference Online – a searchable database for Prohibited Substances. This is an easy way to find out about any medication and if it contains prohibited substances. Just go to the link, type in the medication and hit go! Global Drug Reference Online

  • WADA Prohibited Substance List
  • Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) – What is this and do you need to request one?
  • In some situations, an athlete may have an illnesses or condition that requires the use of medication listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List. A Therapeutic Use Exemption or TUE provides permission for an athlete to have a prohibited substance in their body at the time of a drug test. All TUE applications MUST be accompanied by medical verification and explanation (i.e., tests, lab work, diagnostics, x-rays, etc.). Without a TUE, a medication violation can result in a FEI suspension. A TUE application can be found on line through link provided below or contact Christy Baxter at USEF (cbaxter@usef.org or 908.326.1152). The TUE application will need to be completed and submitted to USEF, attention: Christy Baxter. USEF will then submit to the FEI for review and approval. TUE applications need to be completed and submitted to the FEI 30 days prior to participating at an FEI event.

  • Supplement Information
  • Do not take supplements without fully knowing the ingredients! Supplements will never be risk free.

    Supplements can contain prohibited substances and can be in dietary/nutritional supplements. Educate yourself by clicking HERE where you will be directed to additional information about supplements.

  • Whereabouts – What are these and do you have to fill these out?
  • Whereabouts information (dates, times, locations, etc.) is information submitted to USADA by an athlete, which allows the athlete to be located for out-of-competition testing. Whereabouts requirements must include an athlete’s regular schedule 365 days a year. Only athletes in a registered testing pool (RTP), who have been personally and directly informed of their inclusion in a RTP, are required to submit whereabouts. All other athletes are not. Whereabouts requirements are determined by registered testing pool inclusion, not event participation. Christy Baxter from USEF will be in touch with athletes who are a part of the RTP.
