Australian Polo Federation Anti Doping Policy 10 August 2020

26 Aug 2020

NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS

The Australian Polo Federation Anti-Doping Policy has been amended and is effective 10 August 2020.

The changes bring our sport in line with the establishment of Sport Integrity Australia which will replace the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) as the National Anti-Doping Organisation (NADO) in Australia from 1 July 2020.

The changes which come into effect on 10 August 2020 are:

  • Replacing the words Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) with Sport Integrity Australia (SIA);
  • Replacing CAS with the National Sports Tribunal (NST) as the first-instance hearing body for all athletes and the Appeals Division of the NST for appeals for ‘non-international level’ athletes.
  • Amending the definition of ‘National Level Athlete’ to introduce the Lower-Level Athlete category to allow greater flexibility in dealing with and sanctioning athletes below International or National level; and
  • Removing the Anti-Doping Rule Violation Panel.

You can stay educated about Anti-Doping by downloading the ASADA Clean Sport App, available through the Apple App Store and Google Play.

The App is a one stop shop for Anti-Doping which includes tools to find low risk supplements, check if a medication is banned in sport, complete a virtual reality testing mission, give ASADA feedback, report doping and more.
