Christmas and New Year shutdown

20 December 2017

The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority’s (ASADA) office will be closed for the Christmas and New Year holidays from Friday, 22 December until Tuesday, 2 January 2018.  

Our testing program will continue to operate during the closure. 

All Registered Testing Pool athletes must provide their whereabouts this summer. It is important to update any changes to whereabouts information over the holiday period. If you are going on holidays and need to update your hotel details or include a room number, our Whereabouts videos explain how.

Options on the ASADA Hotline (13 000 27232) may be limited during the closure. Following are some alternative options that might address your needs.


Our website might be able to answer your immediate questions. Run a search for the topic you are enquiring about.

Checking a medication

If you need to check an Australian medication or a substance, try the online Check Your Substances tool in the first instance. If you require additional assistance call 13 000 27232 and select option 1 to leave a message. 


If you have a whereabouts enquiry, send an email or call 13 000 27232 and select option 2 to leave a message.

Stamp Out Doping

If you want to confidentially report suspicious doping activity in sport, ASADA’s Stamp Out Doping online form is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

Therapeutic Use Exemption

For matters relating to Therapeutic Use Exemptions send an email to ASDMAC. Include in the email your next competition and when it is on. 

Non-urgent enquiries will be dealt with when the office re-opens on 2 January 2018.


Media services will be limited during the shutdown period. Full media services will resume from Wednesday, 3 January 2018.
