2014 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods online


Lausanne, Switzerland, January 16, 2014 – The 2014 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods, published by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), and which is now available to all FIVB volleyball and beach volleyball athletes, as well as their Team Support Personnel, came into force on January 1, 2014.

Some of the major changes to the 2014 list include:

·          Changes to the nomenclature of some substances on the List, which has been updated to International Non-proprietary Names (INN).

·          A reclassification of drugs that metabolise to amphetamine or methamphetamine on account of improved analytical techniques, which permit the identification of the administered drug and corresponding metabolites.

·          Changes made to the wording describing the blood alcohol threshold of athletes.

·          The addition of mitragynine to the Narcotics class of the Monitoring Program in order to detect potential patterns of abuse.

Similar to the 2013 Prohibited List, the List and its related documents is now available for mobile devices and as an iPhone/iPad application in addition to the print and PDF formats.

The FIVB encourages athletes and team support personnel to become familiar with all changes on the list.

For more detailed information on the 2014 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods and its changes for 2014 visit the medical section on the FIVB Website.
