Checking Medication

It is essential that all players check medication that they are prescribed to check whether or not it is a Prohibited Substance.

If it is a Prohibited Substance then the player will need to apply for a TUE before taking the medication.

Click the button below to be taken to the Global Drug Reference Online where you can check the status of any medication.


You can search by brand or ingredient. Please note that this service only is only suitable for medication and cannot be used to check the status of a particular supplement.

If you have any questions, please contact the Scotland RL or RFL Anti-Doping team.

TUE Application Process

Some athletes or athlete support personnel who are submitting TUE applications to UKAD will need to be aware of the TUE application process. Club and Team doctors will be able to support athletes in the application and submission process. UKAD’s TUE wizard is a useful tool to guide athletes and support personnel through this process. For more information visit here.

International level athletes, as defined by their International Federation, should visit the International Federation website or contact it directly for information on how to apply for a TUE.
