The Global Drug Information Database (Global DID)
The Global Drug Information Database (Global DID) is an online service that provides athletes and their support personnel with fast and accurate information about which drugs and other substances are prohibited under the rules of sport.

Visitors can search the Global DID for sport-specific information on products sold in the United Kingdom and Canada. The site also contains information on the classes of substances that are prohibited in sport, therapeutic use exemptions, and tips for athletes who train and compete abroad.

The Global DID is brought to you by a partnership between UK Sport and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, the national anti-doping agencies of the United Kingdom and Canada. The substance information is updated regularly by professional pharmacists and sport status is based on the World Anti-Doping Agency's current Prohibited List.
