    Welcome to the National Integrity Framework


      What is the National Integrity Framework?

      The National Integrity Framework takes a proactive approach to mitigate integrity threats to sports and provide a safe, fair and healthy environment for participants at all levels of sport.

      The Framework is designed to reduce the administrative burden on sports and provide better outcomes for sports and their members when disputes arise.

      The National Integrity Framework Policy outlines the elements that apply to all policies within the Framework, such as definitions, jurisdiction and the responsibility of National Sporting Organisations in relation to managing the framework.

      A National Sporting Organisation is required to put in place practices to enable it to manage the application and implementation of the National Integrity Framework. This includes appointing an Integrity Unit or Integrity Manager, and Complaints Manager (as per the Complaints, Disputes and Discipline Policy).

      It also sets out requirements and responsibilities of the National Sporting Organisation in relation to:

      • binding members, volunteers and contractors to the Framework
      • the recruitment of employees, contractors and volunteers
      • education and promotion of the Framework
      • reporting policy breaches to Sport Integrity Australia and other agencies.
