AUF Anti Doping Policy


The Australian Underwater Federation Anti-Doping Policy has been amended and is effective 1 Jan 2021.

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.
