|TBA has adopted the Australian National Anti-Doping Policy, which was developed by Sport Integrity Australia (SIA) to reflect the changes to the World Anti-Doping Code and Australian legislation. The purpose of a single Australian National Anti-Doping Policy is to bring greater consistency for anti-doping rules across the sporting community. This change means that the Australian National Anti-Doping Policy will be housed on the SIA website and TBA will no longer have an individual Anti-Doping Policy.|
The policy can be found on the Sport Integrity Australia website – check here to find out more. All State & Territory bodies and members will be bound by the Australian National Anti-Doping Policy. This includes athletes, support personnel and employees, whose employment contracts enables this. It is important that all members, including athletes and support personnel, have a strong understanding of their obligations under the new policy. Changes include a new anti-doping rule violation of retaliation, a category of athletes that is lower-level and flexibility related to the sanctioning for certain levels of athletes/participants.
