About the Code of Integrity for Sport and Recreation (the Integrity Code)

  • The Integrity Code will be one of the key tools for the sector to enhance integrity in sport and recreation.
  • It will set consistent standards to prevent and address threats to integrity – including what is expected of participants and sport and recreation organisations.
  • Sport and recreation organisations can choose whether to adopt the Integrity Code.
  • Implementing the Integrity Code will be an opportunity for organisations to help protect participants from harm and reduce the risk of serious integrity issues occurring.
  • The Commission’s powers to protect participants are not limited to the Code. It will operate a complaints and dispute resolution service and can conduct investigations regardless of whether an organisation has adopted the Code.
  • Education, support and guidance from the Commission will be available whether or not an organisation adopts the Integrity Code.
