Each sport organization’s policy regarding banned substances is tailored to their individual needs, experiences, and challenges. For client organizations that create a banned substances list, exemption forms, and other key information, Drug Free Sport AXIS offers a prescription medication database. AXIS users can search and check the status of medications against their athletic organization’s standards.
Because pharmaceutical drugs undergo rigorous clinical trials and approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), AXIS is able to provide users with an immediate response if a medication is “banned/prohibited” or “not banned/permitted.” If a medication is not found in the database (i.e. internationally-sourced drugs), AXIS users may submit the medication as a dietary supplement inquiry and our team will respond with appropriate information within one business day.
