LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Nov. 2–An iPhone app launched Tuesday by the International Equestrian Federation provides faster and easier access to the FEI Prohibited Substances online database.

The free app is available only for Apple’s iPhone at the iTunes Store.

But the FEI said it is investigating how to adapt the technology for other smart phones.

In addition to enabling users to easily navigate the prohibited substances database, the app also includes short definitions on each substance and a selection of common trade names to avoid confusion.

A feedback function allows users to seek further advice or clarification.

The database was initially launched on the FEI website this year. Since then a number of improvements have been made to its functionality, including optimization of the search function and automatic email acknowledgement.

“This is a truly ground-breaking service for those involved in horse sport. It will enable users to have fingertip access to often crucial information about prohibited substances which is another huge asset in the FEI’s Clean Sport campaign,” said Harald Muller, FEI Director of Education & Standards.
