The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) is a government statutory authority. Its mission is to protect Australia's sporting integrity through the elimination of doping The List of prohibited drugs is updated annually, coming into effect on 1 January of that year. It is the athlete’s responsibility to check the status of any medication or substance prior to use. This can be done through the ASADA website, alternatively there is a free ASADA Clean Sport App which can be downloaded to your phone.

ASADA cautions athletes about the use of sports supplements as the contents can vary from batch to batch and may include prohibited substances. Athletes who take supplements are at risk of committing an inadvertent anti-doping violation.
