About the Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Committee

The Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Committee (ASDMAC) is an independent statutory body established under Part 7 of the Sport Integrity Australia Act 2020 (SIA Act). Members of ASDMAC are appointed by the Federal Minister for Sport and are generally senior specialist doctors who are trained in Sport and Exercise Medicine and have broad experience in professional, Olympic and Paralympic sports.

Overview of the vacancy

ASDMAC is the specialist medical advisory committee authorised under the SIA Act to provide medical information and advice about sports anti-doping and safety matters. ASDMAC’s primary role is to consider, and where appropriate, approve Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) applications for the legitimate use of a substance or method otherwise prohibited in sport. The issuing of a TUE is an important aspect of global anti-doping arrangements as it allows athletes to legitimately access appropriate medical treatment when they have an illness or medical condition without violating anti-doping rules.

In addition to those outlined above, the SIA Act sets out various functions of ASDMAC, including:

  • (a) the functions conferred on the ASDMAC by the National Anti-Doping scheme
  • (b) giving advice and information to the Sport Integrity Australia CEO and the Australian Sports Commission about the performance of the ASDMAC’s functions, and about sports doping and safety matters
  • (c) giving information to sporting administration bodies about individual cases that involve sports doping and safety matters, and
  • (d) providing services relating to sports doping and safety matters under contract on behalf of the Commonwealth.

ASDMAC members

ASDMAC consists of the following members:

  • (a) a Chair;
  • (b) at least 3, and not more than 6, primary members;
  • (c) 3 review members.

Qualifications and experience

The work of the Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Committee is highly technical and specialised in nature. Accordingly, under the SIA Act, ASDMAC members must be a registered medical practitioner and must have experience in, either sports medicine, clinical pharmacology or endocrinology. Experience within an anti-doping context is highly desirable but not essential.


Remuneration for members of ASDMAC is set by the Remuneration Tribunal according to the latest remuneration determination.
