IFS Anti-Doping Code is based on World Anti-Doping Agency(WADA)code and ratified in 2015.
Athletes may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medications or undergo procedures.
If the medication required by the athlete to treat his/her illness or condition happens to be in the WADA Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) may give that athlete the authorization to take the needed medicine or method.
To apply for TUE:
1)Fill in the IFS TUE form (download below)
2)Contact your physician or sports doctor to gather a complete medical file. Please provide an English translation.
3) Send all documents by email to the offices of the International Sumo Federation a minimum of 30 days prior to participating in a competition.
