Safeguarding the Integrity of Australian Sport

The Government welcomes the Review of Australia’s Sports Integrity Arrangements (the Review) – the most comprehensive analysis of Australia’s sports integrity arrangements ever undertaken. The Review found that Australia is a world leader in the sports integrity field, and has an international reputation as a strong advocate for effective integrity protections. However, the Review also found that there is a rapidly evolving threat environment that Australia must position itself to address.
