ASADA’s Confidentiality Undertaking with Swimming Australia

28 July 2019

On 22 September 2015, Swimming Australia executed a confidentiality undertaking with ASADA for the protection of privacy of personal information.

Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) has entered into multiple individual confidentiality undertakings with sporting organisations for the purposes of the National Anti-Doping Scheme.

The confidentiality undertaking prohibited Swimming Australia from comment. From the outset ASADA has been working closely with Swimming Australia.

The publication of information is often complex and is regulated through a range of governance instruments including the World Anti-Doping Code and Privacy Standard, ASADA legislation, the Privacy Act and our binding agreements with sports all to be considered.

ASADA is Australia’s independent National Anti-Doping Organisation with the ability to utilise legislative powers to conduct thorough anti-doping investigations.

ASADA continues to undertake an ongoing investigation in relation to this matter and will not be making further comment.
