As mentioned in the IUTA rules the IUTA adheres to the rules, regulations and policies of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). If there is a conflict between WADA rules and IUTA rules, IUTA rules supersedes.

It is the responsibility of each participant of IUTA sanctioned races to comply with the applicable anti-doping WADA rules, regulations and policies. WADA’s Article 2.1.1 states: "It is each Athlete’s personal duty to ensure that no Prohibited Substance enters his or her body. Athletes are responsible for any Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers found to be present in their Samples. Accordingly, it is not necessary that intent, Fault, negligence or knowing Use on the Athlete’s part be demonstrated in order to establish an anti-doping rule violation under Article 2.1."

The following text was developed by IUTA with the great support of numerous active athletes. The aim is to educate athletes that the effect of dietary supplements is more than questionable and can sometimes even be harmful to health or even lead to a positive anti-doping test.

If an athlete uses medicine that is wholly or partially on the list of prohibited substances, he must report all facts to the IUTA before the competition.
