A decision to deny a TUE application includes a written explanation of the reason(s) for the denial. If it is not clear to the athlete, please contact ETH-ADA to understand exactly why the TUE was denied. Sometimes, there may be a critical piece of information, diagnostic test, laboratory results missing, etc. In which case, you should re-apply to ETH-ADA. Otherwise, Athletes may appeal the denial decision as to ETH-ADA Appeal Panel.
