TUE – Therapeutic Use Exemptions
WCBS reports that we recognize the decisions of the national TUE committees. Competitors having TUE decisions must inform about those facts to the organizers of international billiard tournaments – at least 30 days before the world and continental championships and 20 days before the other events. In case of any doubts, the tournament organizer may request confirmation of the player’s status in the WCBS Anti-Doping Commission.
