*IMPORTANT INFORMATION RE BETA BLOCKERS*
From 6th January 2019, unapproved use of Beta Blockers in Darts will be subject to DRA Disciplinary rules and procedures.
This could result in a ban from playing and any other penalties. If you are currently prescribed Beta Blockers (Or any other medication) by your GP, health professional or specialist you need to fully understand the following information.
If you are currently prescribed Beta Blockers (or other medication) and have obtained a TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) Certificate, you have completed the requirements to declare your use of them and to continue to compete in Darts without risk of a testing breach.
If you are currently prescribed Beta Blockers (or other medication) and have not completed a TUE form, then you must do so IMMEDIATELY. Failure to do so may put you in breach of the relevant rules if selected for drug testing.

Global DRO does not contain information on, or that applies to, any dietary supplements. Visitors can search the Global DRO for specific information on products sold in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States and Japan.
Statement on supplements:
Supplement products are not on WADA list of prohibited substances per se. Nevertheless, we suggest all players be wary about taking supplements as they sometimes contain ingredients which are not apparent or easily spotted and which might be (alone or in combination with other ingredients) prohibited. Players need to be aware that they take supplements entirely on their own risk: this is also UKAD’s position on supplements.
Global DRO is brought to you through a partnership between UK Anti-Doping (UKAD), the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). The Japan Anti-Doping Agency (JADA) is an official Global DRO licensee.
