The WADA 2013 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods is now available

Following approval by the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Executive Committee on September 10, the 2013 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods is now available.

Noteworthy changes to the List, which will come into force on January 1, 2013, include:

Rewording of section on Prohibited Methods

In order to make Section M1 more encompassing to include all kinds of manipulation of blood and blood components, the title and body of Section M1 has been changed.

The title of M1 now reads ‘Manipulation of Blood and Blood Components’, while M2.3 has been deleted as it is now included in this revised category under M1.3, which reads “any form of intravascular manipulation of the blood or blood components by physical or chemical means.”

Section M3, which covers gene doping, has also been reworded to provide a more precise definition of this prohibited method.


At the request of the Confédération mondiale des sports de boules (CMSB), Fédération Internationale des Quilleurs (FIQ), and Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM), beta-blockers are no longer prohibited in the sports of boules, ninepin and tenpin bowling, and powerboating.

Clarification of stimulants

To give more clarity, under Section 6 for Stimulants it has been confirmed that all optical isomers where relevant are prohibited.

Monitoring Program

In order to reveal potential patterns of abuse, tapentadol has been added to the Monitoring Program in 2013 under in-competition narcotics.

Mobile-friendly formats

In an effort to provide stakeholders with tools to support anti-doping activities and following the successful iPhone application introduced in 2011, the 2013 Prohibited List will again be available on iPhone and other mobile devices.

In addition to English, French and Spanish versions of the List, it is also possible to translate the List into other languages.

Stakeholders who wish to translate the List can do so by November 1, 2012 and send WADA the new version to be inserted in the mobile-friendly platforms at minimal cost.
