„The Prohibited List designates what substances are banned. Its annual revision process is led by WADA over an extensive nine-month consultation process which includes gathering information, circulationg a draft list, stakeholder submissions, committee recommendations and the approval of the List by WADA’’s Executive Committee,“ the FIVB announced, with a desire to prevent cases that occurred last year when Russian (Aleksandr Markin, Aleksey Obmochaev, Evgeniya Startseva and Dmitriy Muserskiy), U.S. (Maxwell Holt – determined he was unaware of taking illegal substances) and Italian (Marcello Forni) volleyball players were caught while using doping.
„It should be noted that, for athletes who have a legitimate medical reason for using a prohibited substance or method that is on the List, they can be accommodated via the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE), which has overwhelming acceptance from athletes, physicians and anti-doping stakeholders worldwide,“ the FIVB emphasized.
