> New List 2014 (English)
> Nouvelle Liste 2014 des Interdictions (French)

Noteworthy changes compared to the 2013 List include:

IN – AND OUT-OF COMPETITION

S1. Anabolic Agents
To ensure clarification and accuracy, changes were made to the definitions of “exogenous” and “endogenous”

S2. Peptide Hormones, Growth Factors and Related Substances
As made clear through points S2.2, S2.3 and S2.4, Releasing factors are prohibited. Furthermore, other prohibited growth factors are listed separately.

S5. Diuretics and other Masking Agents
Vasopressing V2 antagonists (vaptans) were added as an example of a diuretic subclass.

M1. Manipulation of Blood and Blood Components
For the purpose of scientific accuracy, the term allogenic was introduced.


IN-COMPETITION

S6. Stimulants
Some drugs that metabolize to amphetamine or methamphetamine have been reclassified because improved analytical techniques permit the identification of the administered drug and corresponding metabolites; MDMA and MDA are reclassified because they are now recognized as less likely to be used as doping agents; cathinone and its analogues (e.g. mephedrone, methedrone, a- pyrrolidinovalerophenone) and trimetazidine have been added as examples to reflect emerging patterns of drug use.


Monitoring Program

In order to detect potential patterns of abuse, mitragynine has been added to the Narcotics class of the Monitoring Program.
