Article 5.4 of the CA Anti-Doping Policy (ADP) outlines the obligations of athletes, including the provision whereabouts information. In practice, this means timely and accurate information regarding your training and competition programs and your contact details relevant to where you will be located within a given period. The Australian protocols for compliance with this obligation are determined in conjunction with the Australian Sports Anti Doping Authority (ASADA) in accordance with Art 5.4 of the CA ADP; information is required on a quarterly basis by entering your information into the athlete whereabouts online system (ADAMS).

Supplements are not fully regulated in Australia and there is a risk that some supplements may contain ingredients or impurities that could cause a positive test result. It is impossible to guarantee the safety of these products and the athlete remains ultimately responsible for any and all substances that they consume (or supply).
