ARF Drug Control Committee

The ARF Drug Control Committee (ARFDCC) is comprised of experts in racing chemistry and equine veterinary science from across the ARF membership. Among other things, the ARFDCC publishes, maintains and reviews the list of adopted Asian Screening Limits (ASLs) for controlling a group of common equine medications. Where necessary or possible, the ARFDCC establishes and publishes Detection Times (DTs) for the use of medications with adopted ASLs. The ARFDCC also liaises with other drug control groups (including the IFHA Advisory Council on Equine Prohibited Substances and Practices) to establish International Screening Limits (ISLs) and to facilitate the sharing of information both within and outside the ARF for the development of international consistency in medication control policies and practices.
