National Integrity Framework Implementation

National Integrity Framework Implementation

Date: 12 Sep 2022
Posted: 1 year ago

Triathlon WA has recently adopted the National Integrity Framework. This is an important and great step forward for our sport to help us ensure Triathlon is a safe, fair environment for everyone who participates. The National Integrity Framework is a suite of new integrity policies around issues like child safety, member protection, illicit drugs, competition manipulation and others. Today, all members of Triathlon will be bound by the policies.

In addition to the new policies, we have also adopted a new independent complaint handling process, run by Sport Integrity Australia. This means that all members can raise any integrity concerns directly to Sport Integrity Australia, who will review each complaint, and make any disciplinary decisions, independent of Triathlon. 

The suite of policies within the Framework can be found on Integrity In Triathlon sports integrity page on the Triathlon Australia website and include:

  • National Integrity Framework
  • Member Protection Policy
  • Child Safeguarding Policy
  • Competition Manipulation and Sport Wagering Policy
  • Improper Use of Drugs and Medicine Policy
  • Complaints, Disputes and Discipline Policy

What do you need to know?

All participants should familiarise themselves with the National Integrity Framework and in particular the Prohibited Conduct contained within each policy.

From 22 August 2022 if you have a concern or a complaint about an integrity matter related to the above policies, you can submit your concern directly to Sport Integrity Australia using their webform or by phoning 13 000 27232.

Triathlon WA will continue to manage other complaints unrelated to these policies, such as Selection Policy disputes.
