Ecb Logo Gutter Icon 135x160

From January 1 2009, UK Sport will begin the process of re-developing the Drug Information Searches and Services it offers to UK athletes.

The current Drug Information Database™ is being replaced and will be unavailable from January 1 2009.  A replacement will be operational by mid-2009.

It is intended that this service will continue to provide athletes and athlete support personnel with accurate and up-to-date information on the status of medications.

In the interim, athletes can check the status of branded medications or ingredients using the Drug Information List.

Athletes can search the interactive PDF forms alphabetically for particular brands of medications or for specific ingredients contained within products.

This list can be found at

Athletes and athlete support personnel are also reminded that there are other ways to check the status of medications by using either the Drug Enquiry Line on +44 (0) 800 528 0004 or by emailing

Please contact for any doping related enquiries.
