Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)   The Prohibited List

Athletes with medical conditions competing in FIVB and continental competitions must obtain a TUE from the FIVB regardless of whether they have previously received a TUE at the national level. The application for a TUE must be made as soon as possible (in case of an Athlete in the Registered Testing Pool, this would be when he/she is first notified of his/her inclusion in the pool) and no later than 30 days before the Athlete’s participation in the event. To obtain a TUE, fill out the M-8 Form in print or type and send it to the FIVB enclosing all relevant medical files. Please find here further information on TUE procedures. 


The List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (List), is the International Standard that designates what is prohibited in- and out-of competition. The List also indicates whether particular substances are banned in particular sports. Substances and methods are classified by categories (e.g. steroids, stimulants, gene doping). The List is updated annually, published by October 1 and comes into effect on January 1 of the following year. Click here to download the current version (valid as of January 1, 2018).

Whereabouts Information  Doping Control

User Guides:
Athletes | Team Managers

Whereabouts is information provided by a limited number of top elite Athletes concerning their location to the International Sport Federation (IF) or National Anti-Doping Organization (NADO) which includes them in their respective Registered Testing Pool (RTP) as part of these top elite Athletes’ Anti-Doping responsibilities. Please find the following additional information here:

Athletes might get tested anytime and anywhere without previous notice, no matter if they are included in an FIVB Registered Testing Pool (RTP) or not. Generally we distinguish In-competition testing and Out-of-competition testing. Click on WADA's Doping Control Video to get an explanation of the entire procedure.

This video is also available in Arabic, French, German, Greek, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish and can be accessed on WADA's movies channel.

Be aware: Refusing, or failing without compelling justification, to submit to Sample collection after notification as authorized in applicable anti-doping rules or otherwise evading Sample collection is considered as an anti-doping rule violation.

FIVB Medical & Anti-Doping Regulations   Results Management – Athlete's rights

Anti-Doping Rules, like Competition rules, are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. Please find FIVB Medical Regulations which also contain Anti-Doping Rules here.


In addition, WADA’s International Standard for Testing and Investigations (ISTI)

Click here to access ISTI.

Results Management is the process that deals with possible Anti-Doping Rules Violations (ADRV), starting from the reporting of an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF), also called positive test – when the laboratory reports the presence of a Prohibited Substance or evidence of the use of a Prohibited Method in a sample after analysis – until the final sanctioning of an athlete.
The above WADA doping control video also includes the Results Management process. Once informed of an AAF, the Athlete has the following rights:

  • To request for the B sample to be analyzed and to attend himself or via his representative the identification, opening and analysis of the B sample;
  • To request copies of the A and B Sample
  • laboratory documentation package;
  • Right of a fair and timely hearing
  • The right to appeal FIVB's decision which may be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)
