Anti-Doping Rules

Join us as we celebrate clean athletes in the lead-up to the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018

Protecting clean athletes is our number-one priority. Read the Anti-Doping rules in place for the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. These rules apply, without limitation, to all doping controls over which the IOC has jurisdiction for the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.


As part of efforts to protect clean athletes, doping tests are conducted in and out of competition. In order for these tests to be carried out, you need to make your whereabouts known at all times. Find out how this impacts you.

Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs)

Do you take medication to treat a medical condition? TUEs ensure that you are able to obtain treatment for a legitimate medical condition.

As an athlete required to undergo doping control (testing), you must ensure that you do not use anything that is on the List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (the List). If you have an illness or condition that requires the use of a substance that is on the List, you may apply for a TUE authorising you to take the necessary medicine. You will need to obtain the TUE by the deadline of 10 January 2018. Your NOC will be able to assist you in applying for a TUE.

World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)

The World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) mission is to lead the worldwide movement for doping-free sport. Find out more at the WADA Booth, located at the entrance to the Main Dining Hall of both Villages.

The purpose of the World Anti-Doping Code is:

  • To protect the athletes’ fundamental right to participate in doping-free sport and thus promote health, fairness and equality for athletes worldwide.
  • To ensure harmonised, coordinated and effective Anti-Doping programmes at international and national level with regard to detection, deterrence and prevention of doping.
