ATTENTION ALL ATHLETES… ALWAYS CHECK YOUR MEDICATIONS & SUPPLEMENTS

No matter what your sport, it is very important that all athletes subject to drug testing check the status of any medications they take. Some medications for common medical conditions, such as cold & flu, asthma or hayfever, may contain prohibited substances.

Athletes should remember to check medications carefully before using them, regardless of how familiar they are with the product. Players, clubs, coaches, and support staff can all check the status of licensed medication or constituent ingredient using the Global DRO website.

Please note that Global DRO cannot provide information on the status of any supplements. For all supplements, Informed-Sport is a quality assurance programme for sports nutrition products, suppliers to the sports nutrition industry, and supplement manufacturing facilities.

The programme certifies that all nutritional supplements and/or ingredients that bear the Informed-Sport logo have been tested for banned substances. All athletes choosing to use supplements are encouraged to use the search function on the Informed-Sport website to find products that have been through this rigorous certification process.

REMEMBER… IGNORANCE IS NOT A DEFENCE!!
