Global Drug Reference Online (Global DRO)
British Rowing has recently been informed that UK Sport, in partnership with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) have announced the launch of the Global Drug Reference Online (Global DRO).
Global DRO is a long-term replacement for the previous reference tool, the Drug Information Database(tm) (DID) and provides a quick and easy means by which athletes and support personnel can check the status of medications based on the current World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List.
The new system retains many of the core functions from the Drug Information Database with the ability to check the status of branded medications and individual active ingredients as well as providing every search with a unique reference number. Searchers can find the status of these various ingredients and brands, and more specifically whether they are classified as “Prohibited,” “Not Prohibited,” or “Requires Declaration.” All data will be fully verified by pharmacists experienced in the field of anti-doping.
