Part 2The Rules

Division 2.1Anti‑doping rules

2.01  Anti‑doping rules—general

             (1)  This Division contains the anti‑doping rules. An anti‑doping rule is a provision that provides that a particular circumstance, or particular conduct, constitutes a violation of an anti‑doping rule. The CEO makes assertions about anti‑doping rule violations.

             (2)  Athletes, support persons and non‑participants are responsible for knowing what constitutes an anti‑doping rule violation and the substances and methods that have been included on the prohibited list.

2.01A  Presence in athlete’s sample of prohibited substance, or metabolites or markers

             (1)  Presence of a prohibited substance or its metabolites or markers in an athlete’s sample constitutes a violation of an anti‑doping rule.

             (2)  It is the athlete’s personal duty to ensure that no prohibited substance enters his or her body. Athletes are responsible for a prohibited substance or its metabolites or markers found to be present in their samples. Accordingly, it is not necessary that intent, fault, negligence or knowing use on the athlete’s part be demonstrated in order to establish an anti‑doping rule violation under this clause.

             (3)  Sufficient proof of an anti‑doping rule violation under this clause is established:

                     (a)  by the presence of a prohibited substance or its metabolites or markers in the athlete’s A sample if the athlete waives analysis of the B sample and the B sample is not analysed; or

                     (b)  if the athlete’s B sample is analysed and the analysis of the athlete’s B sample confirms the presence of the prohibited substance or its metabolites or markers found in the athlete’s A sample; or

                     (c)  if the athlete’s A or B sample is split into 2 parts and the analysis of the confirmation part of the split sample confirms the presence of the prohibited substance or its metabolites or markers found in the first part of the split sample or the athlete waives analysis of the confirmation part of the split sample.

             (4)  Excepting those substances for which a decision limit is specifically identified in the prohibited list or a technical document, the presence of any reported quantity of a prohibited substance or its metabolites or markers in an athlete’s sample constitutes a violation of an anti‑doping rule.

             (5)  As an exception to the general rule established by this clause, the prohibited list, International Standards or technical documents may establish special criteria for reporting or the evaluation of certain prohibited substances.

2.01B  Use or attempted use by an athlete of a prohibited substance or a prohibited method

             (1)  Use or attempted use by an athlete of a prohibited substance or a prohibited method constitutes a violation of an anti‑doping rule.

             (2)  It is the athlete’s personal duty to ensure that no prohibited substance enters his or her body and that no prohibited method is used. Accordingly, it is not necessary that intent, fault, negligence or knowing use on the athlete’s part be demonstrated in order to establish an anti‑doping rule violation under this clause.

             (3)  The success or failure of the use or attempted use of a prohibited substance or prohibited method is not material. It is sufficient that the prohibited substance or prohibited method was used or attempted to be used for an anti‑doping rule violation to be committed.

             (4)  In the NAD scheme:

use, in relation to a prohibited substance or prohibited method, means the utilisation, application, ingestion, injection or consumption by any means of the prohibited substance or prohibited method.

                   Evading sample collection, or refusing or failing to submit to sample collection without compelling justification after notification by a duly authorised person, constitutes a violation of an anti‑doping rule.

2.01D  Whereabouts failures by an athlete

                   Any combination of 3 missed tests or filing failures (or both), as defined in the International Standard for Results Management, within a 12 month period by an athlete in a registered testing pool, constitutes a violation of an anti‑doping rule.

             (1)  Possession by an athlete in‑competition of any prohibited substance or any prohibited method, or possession by an athlete out‑of‑competition of any prohibited substance or any prohibited method that is prohibited out‑of‑competition, constitutes a violation of an anti‑doping rule, unless the athlete establishes that the possession is consistent with a therapeutic use exemption granted in accordance with Article 4.4 of the World Anti‑Doping Code or other acceptable justification.

             (2)  Possession by a support person in‑competition of any prohibited substance or any prohibited method, or possession by a support person out‑of‑competition of any prohibited substance or any prohibited method that is prohibited out‑of‑competition in connection with an athlete, competition or training, constitutes a violation of an anti‑doping rule, unless the support person establishes that the possession is consistent with a therapeutic use exemption granted to an athlete in accordance with Article 4.4 of the World Anti‑Doping Code or other acceptable justification.

             (3)  In the NAD scheme:

possession by a person of a prohibited substance or prohibited method means (subject to subclauses (4), (5) and (6)):

                     (a)  actual physical possession; or

                     (b)  constructive possession (which can be found only if the person has exclusive control, or intends to exercise control, over the prohibited substance or prohibited method, or the premises in which the prohibited substance or prohibited method exists).

             (4)  Despite paragraph (b) of the definition of possession in subclause (3), if a person does not have exclusive control over a prohibited substance or prohibited method, or premises in which a prohibited substance or prohibited method exists, constructive possession can only be found if the person knew about the presence of the prohibited substance or prohibited method and intended to exercise control over it.

             (5)  Despite the definition of possession in subclause (3), a person is taken not to have possession of a prohibited substance or prohibited method if, before receiving notification of any kind that the person has committed an anti‑doping rule violation, the person:

                     (a)  has taken concrete action demonstrating that the person never intended to have possession of the prohibited substance or prohibited method; and

                     (b)  has renounced possession of the prohibited substance or prohibited method by explicitly declaring it to an anti‑doping organisation.

             (6)  The purchase (including by any electronic or other means) of a prohibited substance or prohibited method constitutes possession by the person who makes the purchase.

2.01J  Complicity or attempted complicity by an athlete, support person or non‑participant

                   Assisting, encouraging, aiding, abetting, conspiring, covering‑up or any other type of intentional complicity, or attempted complicity, involving an anti‑doping rule violation, or a violation of Article 10.14.1 of the World Anti‑Doping Code, by another person constitutes a violation of an anti‑doping rule.

Schedule 2 heading...................

ed C11

 

Endnote 5—Editorial changes

In preparing this compilation for registration, the following kinds of editorial change(s) were made under the Legislation Act 2003.

Paragraph 4.22(1)(c) of Schedule 1

Kind of editorial change

Changes to grammar, syntax or the use of conjunctives or disjunctives

Details of editorial change

Schedule 1 item 129 of the Sport Integrity Australia Amendment (World Anti‑Doping Code Review) Regulations 2020 instructs to omit “support person” and substitute “, support person or non‑participant”. After the amendment is applied, paragraph 4.22(1)(c) appears as follows:

“the athlete or, support person or non‑participant to whom the information relates has consented to the publication.”

This compilation was editorially changed to omit the word “or” after “athlete” to correct the grammatical error.
