ASADA

The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) is Australia's driving force for pure performance in sport and aims to protect Australia's sporting integrity through the elimination of doping. ASADA deters the use of banned doping practices in sport through education, testing, advocacy and coordination of Australia's anti-doping program. It is the organisation with prime responsibility for implementation of the World Anti-Doping Code (The Code) in Australia.

Athletes are advised to check the status of their existing and new medications every year due to possible yearly changes.

This can be done at any time by referring to the Check Your Substances tool on the ASADA website or by calling the 'Check your substance HOTLINE' on 13 000 27232 (7 days 8am -8pm AEST) or dial internationally +61 2 6222 4200.

Your search will generate a receipt, which you will need to record and print for your records.

The WADA strict liability principle states that YOU as the athlete are responsible for any substances found in your body, regardless of how they got there

The Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Committee (ASDMAC) is the Australian body that gives approval for athletes to use prohibited medications for legitimate therapeutic purposes, in addition to other functions. More information can be found at http://www.asdmac.gov.au
