AFF Anti-Doping Policy
The December 2008 AFF General Meeting adopted the attached Anti-Doping Policy as the new national policy for our sport.
This new policy contains a number of significant changes, including matters in the following areas: sanctions; whereabouts management; upgrading of the prohibited list, abolition of the ATUEs, though some have been upgraded to TUEs and the current notifications, unless otherwise stated on the form, extended to 31 December 2009
TUEs to now go to Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Council (ASMAC), instead of the FIE, unless the athlete is in the FIE Registered Testing Pool (ie in the top 16 of the FIE international rankings).
It is the responsibility of each fencer, including parents in the case of junior fencers, to be familiar with this new updated anti-doping policy and its requirements.
Please note that the sole authority for advice in relation to medications and this policy is ASADA and any enquiries should be direct to ASADA. Contact details can be found at: www.asada.gov.au
