When should I apply for a TUE (if I need one)?

  National competition New Zealand representation
Criteria Athletes who compete in the Open Age category at a National Championship event (includes short course and long course).    Athletes selected in the elite national representative team (men and women).
When to apply for a TUE If you need to take medication that contains a prohibited substance or method, you must have a TUE in place one (1) week prior to the event start date and it should remain in place for the duration of the event (while you are still taking the medication).
If you need to take medication that contains a prohibited substance or method, you should apply for a TUE as soon as you are selected.  
The TUE should remain in place until the competition period or the pinnacle event for the current year has ended e.g. the finals (while you are still taking the medication).   
Note: if you lose your place in the team due to injury or performance, you must have a TUE in place as you could still be drug tested during this time.
