National Integrity Framework

National Integrity Framework

The National Integrity Framework is a set of rules that all members of our sport need to follow when it comes to their behaviour and conduct in sport. There are four core policies which make up the National Integrity Framework. These are:

  1. Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy
  2. Member Protection Policy
  3. Improper Use of Drugs and Medicine Policy
  4. Competition Manipulation and Sports Gambling Policy

These policies are underpinned by the Complaints, Disputes and Discipline Policy, which explains how people who have breached a National Integrity Framework policy are held accountable for doing the wrong thing.

  1. Complaints, Disputes and Discipline Policy.

Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy

Participation in sport should be safe for all. The Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy is designed to protect children and young people in sport by putting in place rules and processes to ensure sporting environments are inclusive, positive and safe for all children and young people, all the time.

This policy highlights the important legal and governance responsibilities in relation to child safety.

Member Protection Policy

The Member Protection Policy is designed to protect the welfare, wellbeing and health of everyone involved in sport. It provides clear definitions of abuse, bullying, harassment, sexual misconduct, discrimination, victimisation and vilification in sport, along with information on how to report these behaviours.

This Policy seeks to ensure that everyone involved in target rifle shooting is aware of their rights and responsibilities. The Policy sets out the standards of behaviour expected and the behaviours that are not acceptable.

Improper Use of Drugs and Medicine Policy

The improper use of drugs and medicine in sport, including the use of supplements and the provision by unqualified and unauthorised people are a risk to the health of athletes and the integrity of sport.

The Improper Use of Drugs and Medicines Policy is designed to protect athletes from harm caused by the improper use of medicines, supplements and illegal drugs.

Competition Manipulation and Sport Gambling Policy

Manipulating sports competitions, commonly known as ‘match-fixing’ is when someone alters a sporting competition to remove the unpredictable nature of the competition to obtain an undue advantage, or benefit.

Complaints, Disputes and Discipline Policy (CDDP)

The Complaints, Disputes and Disciplines Policy (CDDP) sets out the process for resolving complaints arising from a breach of an eligible policy.

Complaints relating to the Safeguarding of Children and Young People and Discrimination of adults on the basis of a Protected Characteristic (race or nationality, disability, sex, age, sexual orientation, and religion) can be reported to and investigated by Sport Integrity Australia independently.

Complaints relating to all other Member Protection matters, Competition Manipulation and Sports Gambling matters and Improper Use of Drugs and Medicines matters should be reported to and will be investigated by the NRAA’s Complaints Manager and Integrity Manager.
