Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE)
Boxer health and welfare is vital. If a boxer has an illness or condition that requires them to take medication which contains ingredients listed on the Prohibited List, then there are steps they need to take to obtain a TUE.
The TUE process is a means by which a boxer can obtain approval to use a prescribed prohibited substance or method for the treatment of a legitimate medical condition.
