On the 29th September 2022, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) publishes the 2023 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (List), which was approved by WADA’s Executive Committee (ExCo) during its meeting on 23 September 2022 and enters into force on 1 January 2023.
o the 2023 Summary of Major Modifications and Explanatory Notes as compared to the 2022 List; and
o the 2023 Monitoring Program, which includes substances that are not on the List, but that WADA wishes to monitor in order to detect potential patterns of misuse in sport.
The List is one of the eight International Standards that are mandatory for all Signatories of the World Anti-Doping Code (Code). It designates what substances and methods are prohibited both in- and out-of-competition and which substances are banned in particular sports.
WADA Director General Olivier Niggli said: “As it does every year, WADA led an extensive consultation process concerning the Prohibited List, which involves qualified experts in the fields of science and medicine from around the world. This process allows WADA to review scientific research and identify the latest doping trends to ensure that any new or existing substance or method that may meet the criteria for addition to the List are considered, so as to protect athlete health and the integrity of clean sport worldwide.”

All Major Modifications for 2023 are outlined in the 2023 Summary of Major Modifications and Explanatory Notes.
