Whereabouts

Athletes who are part of the Registered Testing Pool (RTP) need to let us know where they are going to be, at specific times, so we can perform no-advance notice testing.

Check your substances on Global DRO

Athletes and support personnel can use Global DRO (online search tool) to find out whether the most commonly prescribed and over-the-counter medicines in Australia are permitted or prohibited in their sport.

Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

Athletes may at times need to use a prohibited medication to treat a legitimate medical condition.

Anti-doping rule violations

Under the World Anti-Doping Code there are ten possible Anti-Doping Rule Violations.

Rule violation management process

Australia has a robust process in place to determine if an athlete or support person has committed a possible anti-doping rule violation (ADRV). This process is legislated and at its heart is the notion of procedural fairness.

Athlete counselling

This initiative provides an athlete, who has been notified of a possible anti-doping rule violation, with free access to independent and confidential counselling with qualified professionals.

World Anti-Doping Code

Submit your whereabouts
