Q. Who needs to complete a Medical Declaration form?
A. Anyone representing Great Britain or their Home Country internationally or competing in a British Swimming the ASA, SASA or WASA National event (all disciplines, excluding masters) and taking medication whether prescribed by a Doctor or purchased from a pharmacy or other retail outlet is also required to declare these details to British Swimming by completing a Medication Declaration Form. (Please note a new medical declaration form MUST be completed annually even if the medication prescribed has not been altered or if no medication is being taken and whenever the medication is changed)
Q. For what purpose is this information needed?
A. The reason advance notification is necessary is in order to determine if any Athlete needs a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) as without one an Athlete who is tested runs the risk of receiving a positive doping test. This is of concern as British Swimming has overall responsibility for regulating doping control in all the disciplines of the sport of swimming.
