Anti-Doping Testing may be conducted at any round of the event. Sport Integrity Australia may come to your location if they are testing.
A TUE is an exemption that allows an athlete to use, for therapeutic purposes only, an otherwise prohibited substance or method (of administering a substance). TUE approval may protect athletes from receiving a sanction if a prohibited substance is found in their sample.
If you are currently taking any medication, please check whether this substance is banned in or out of competition via www.globaldro.com/AU/search
Further information on the TUE process can be found on the Sport Integrity Australia (SIA) website https://www.sportintegrity.gov.au/resources/therapeutic-use-exemption or by calling 1300 027 23.
Any athlete and official can download the SIA app. The SIA App has been designed with athletes in mind.
The App gives a complete list of all supplements sold in Australia that have been screened for prohibited substances by an independent laboratory. The testing and certification of sports supplements cannot provide athletes a 100% safety guarantee but does significantly lower the risk of a positive test. For non-tested supplements the App gives athletes access to a quiz to assess the risk posed by highlighting key risk factors.
The App can also be used to report doping, check if a medication is banned in sport, give SIA feedback on testing missions, and complete online education modules.
