Integrity In Triathlon (National Integrity Framework, Anti-Doping, Report a Concern)


Maintaining the integrity of the sport of triathlon in Australia is of utmost importance to Triathlon Australia and to our State and Territory Triathlon Associations. Triathlon Australia is committed to protecting Triathlon from integrity threats and safeguarding our participants. 


On the 15th of March 2022 the Triathlon Australia Board resolved to adopt the National Integrity Framework. The National Integrity Framework will commence on the 4th of May 2022.

The National Integrity Framework is a streamlined suite of sports policies to address threats to integrity and is designed to both reduce the administrative burden on National Sporting Organisations including Triathlon Australia and provide better outcomes for sports and their members where disputes arise. The National Integrity Framework templates supplied by Sport Integrity Australia provide the benchmark standards for Triathlon Australia to outline behavioural expectations and procedures for managing any reported breaches.

At the heart of the National Integrity Framework is an independent and efficient complaints handling model whereby Sport Integrity Australia will be able to assess, investigate and manage complaints and disputes across areas such as member protection, child safeguarding and competition manipulation.

The Complaints, Disputes and Discipline Policy sets out the system for resolving complaints and administering disciplinary action arising from an individual or organisation engaging in prohibited conduct under the National Integrity Framework. This independent process ensures that sport integrity related complaints are dealt with efficiently and effectively and that all involved are assured that prohibited conduct will be managed via the most appropriate resolution and discipline mechanism.

The National Integrity Framework includes:

1. National Integrity Framework
2. Child Safeguarding Policy
3. Competition Manipulation and Sport Wagering Policy
4. Improper Use of Drugs and Medicine Policy
5. Member Protection Policy
6. Complaints, Disputes and Discipline Policy

The Australian National Anti-Doping Policy sits alongside the National Integrity Framework.
