2021 WADA - New Anti-Doping Policy

Please be advised that Paralympics Australia’s Anti-Doping Policy has changed as of 1 January 2021. Paralympics Australia has adopted the Australian National Anti-Doping Policy which was developed by Sport Integrity Australia to reflect the changes to the World Anti-Doping Agency Code and Australian legislation.

All members of Paralympics Australia are 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 sanctioning for certain levels of athletes/participants.

The Australian National Anti-Doping Policy can be found on the Sport Integrity Australia website here
