CADF provides administrative support to the UCI Therapeutic Use Exemptions Committee (TUEC) which is composed of independent experts in the fields of clinical, sports and exercise medicine.
A TUE is special permission to use a prohibited substance or method for a legitimate medical condition.
Riders, like everyone else, may have illnesses or condition which requires a particular medication. If a substance contained in the medication or the method used appears on the Prohibited List, the rider must apply for a TUE before starting the treatment. After the UCI TUEC has reviewed the TUE application, the rider may be given authorization to obtain treatment.
