Players, like all others, may have illnesses and injuries that require them to take particular medications. If the medication a player is required to take to treat an illness or injury includes the use of a substance or method that happens to fall under the WADA Prohibited List, the player will require an exemption to use that medication - this is called a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE).
The Therapeutic Use Exemption Committee (TUEC) appointed by the ICC evaluates applications from international players for TUEs. Domestic players should submit their TUE applications to their National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs).
For further information on the ICC TUE application process and the ICC TUE form please refer to the following documents.
