In application of Monegasque national regulations as well as of the World Anti-Doping Code, it is the responsibility of each athlete to ensure that no prohibited substance enters his body and to ensure that he does not use a prohibited method of administration.

In order to help athletes and their medical staff to comply with these obligations, they are invited to read the following information:

1- Consult the website of the Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee

The website of the Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee ( includes a database to check whether, with regard to the Prohibited List drawn up annually by the World Anti-Doping Agency, a drug sold in France or Principality of Monaco Whether or not it contains illegal substances or uses a prohibited method of administration.

This database that we share with the French Agency for the Fight against Doping is accessible on the home page of the site under the heading "Test if your drug is doping".

2 - Take medication bought in Monaco or France with you

It is highly recommended when an athlete goes abroad to train or participate in a competition that he takes with him any medicines bought in Monaco or in France that he may need.

3 - Buying drugs abroad carries risks of positive control

The Committee reminds athletes in the Principality and their medical staff that if they need to buy drugs abroad, they must pay attention to the fact that these drugs may contain prohibited substances.

Indeed, the fact that the drug bears the same name abroad as the one it bears in Monaco and in France does not mean that its composition is the same : it is therefore up to athletes and members of the medical staff to check in particular with the local pharmacist that it does not contain prohibited substances.

In all cases, it is important to purchase the drugs from a Pharmacy and a packaging including a notice showing their composition.

4 - In the event of travel abroad, consult the indicative list of foreign databases

The Committee summarizes below the list of the few databases foreign policies to ensure that the drugs that are on sale in the countries in question do not contravene the Prohibited List of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

The database called "Global DRO": Australia, Canada, United States of America, Japan, New Zealand, United Kingdom of Great Britain, Switzerland

Accessible on the site, it makes it possible to check the compliance of drugs sold in the following countries with the Prohibited List:

- Australia
- Canada
- United States of America
- Japan
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom of Great Britain
- Swiss

DRO Global is limited to drugs containing substances or methods of administration appearing on the World Anti-Doping Agency's prohibited list.

Its database does not take into account substances and methods which could be prohibited for another reason, for example by the regulations of an International Federation or of an organizer of a major sporting event.

So the fact that a medicine is not in DRO Global does not mean that you can take it without the risk of committing an anti-doping rule violation while playing your sport..

It is therefore important that at all times you check with the International Federation concerned or the organizer of a major sporting event, what are the substances that they prohibit in addition to those appearing on the WADA Prohibited List.

In addition, Global DRO does not contain information on dietary supplements, unless the product label mentions a prohibited ingredient.. The same goes for homeopathic products and other unconventional medicine products.

It should be noted thatun food supplement may contain prohibited substances even if your research on all of the ingredients on the label suggests that they are not banned or are not listed on DRO Global. Dietary supplements may contain ingredients not listed on the label or a prohibited ingredient identified by another name that is not listed in DRO Global.

In this regard, the Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee reminds athletes and their medical staff that all athletes consume any substance and any food supplement at their own risk.

The PILD Portal iberoamericano para la lucha contra el dopaje database: Hispano-American portal for the fight against doping

This database only concerns medicinal products authorized for sale in Spain. It is indicated here due to the fact that Latin American countries import many of these drugs.

National databases:

There are in a number of other countries not covered by DRO Global databases of drugs authorized for sale there.

Below is their updated list as of May 7, 2020 with the responsible body and the direct link to the relevant database.

The Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee strives to keep this list regularly up to date. If you are aware of a database that is not listed, please kindly let us know. Thank you.
