    Ongoing engagement

    Sport Integrity Australia is in discussion with a number of sports about their adoption of the National Integrity Framework. Many of these sports are currently considering the Framework alongside their current arrangements, with the potential view to taking the Framework to their committees and/or boards for endorsement. In some cases, Sport Integrity Australia has formal agreements to manage major integrity threats for sports in the interim period prior to adoption.

     

    Sport Integrity Policy Standards

    The Sport Integrity Policy Standards (the ‘Standards’) that have been developed by Sport Integrity Australia, are a series of components derived from the National Integrity Framework (NIF).

    These standards have been created to inform the development of integrity frameworks and policies for sporting organisations that choose not to, or are unable to, adopt the NIF.

    The ‘Standards’ consist of mandatory and recommended components, and sport-specific considerations. Sports that wish to comply with the ‘Standards’ must include the mandatory components (either in each individual integrity policy or in a policy that connects them, such as the complaints and disputes policy/procedure), that cover the following integrity threats: 

    • Safeguarding Children and Young People
    • Member Protection 
    • Competition Manipulation and Sport Gambling 
    • Improper Use of Drugs and Medicine
    • Complaint and Dispute Handling

    Sports in compliance with the Standards

    The below NSOs and NSODs, comply with or are in the process of complying with the Sport Integrity Australia Policy ‘Standards’ across all integrity threats, as detailed above. If your sport is on this list, you should report all integrity issues to your NSO/NSOD.
