National Guidelines and Standards


New RDAA Policies

From Theresa Moore, Executive Officer, Riding for the Disabled Association Australia

We are pleased to inform you that Riding for the Disabled Association Australia has recently adopted Sport Integrity’s National Integrity Framework which will come into effect on 27 June, 2022.

This is an important and great step forward for our sport in providing a safer and more inclusive environment for our participants whilst enabling all integrity-related complaints to be handled consistently and independently by Sport Integrity Australia.

We want everyone in our sport to feel safe to speak up about integrity concerns.  Your organisation, as a member of Riding for the Disabled, and your members are all bound by the National Integrity Framework.  This includes participants, support personnel, employees and volunteers.

The Framework is a streamlined suite of policies that sets out the broad expectations for the conduct of all participants in our sport.  These expectations relate to safeguarding children, member protection, competition manipulation and sports wagering, and the misuse of drugs and medicines.

What will change?

A significant change that comes with the adoption of the National Integrity Framework is the management of complaints. From 27 June, 2022, all integrity-related complaints for our sport will be processed independently by Sport Integrity Australia under the Complaints, Disputes & Discipline Policy.

It is important that all members of our sport have a thorough understanding of their obligations under the National Integrity Framework and familiarise themselves with the process for reporting concerns or complaints through to Sport Integrity Australia.

If you have any questions about the National Integrity Framework or require further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact Executive Officer, Theresa Moore.

Sport Integrity Australia is currently preparing additional education and resources to support the National Integrity Framework.  If you have any suggestions or questions about this, please contact engagement@sportintegrity.gov.au
