Ice Skating Australia is committed to the world wide ethics in relation to doping.
Doping contravenes the fundamental principles of Olympic Spirit, sports and medical ethics and is forbidden.
Ice Skating Australia's anti-doping policy is set in consultation with the Australian Olympic Committee, International Skating Union, Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority, Australian Sports Commission, International Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency.
All Skaters within Australia are governed by the national jurisdiction of the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA), the Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Committee (ASDMAC) and the ISA Anti-Doping policy.

ASADA's testing programme and testing guide.
Sample collection (also known as doping control or drug testing) is an essential part of promoting and protecting doping-free sport. It is the process to detect and/or deter the use of a prohibited substance, or prohibited method, by an athlete.
Athlete Whereabouts, RTP and DTP.
Athletes who are part of the Registered Testing Pool (RTP) need to let us know where they are going to be, at specific times, so ASADA can perform no-advance notice testing.
In Australia, ASADA’s role is to conduct the Results Management Process and to present information to the independent Anti-Doping Rule Violation Panel about a potential violation of the Code.
There are 6 areas under this link: violations, sanctions, process, counselling, policies and the World Anti-Doping Code.
