National Integrity Framework

To streamline integrity policies across sports, the National Integrity Framework has been developed by Sports Integrity Australia.  Table Tennis Australia (TTA) has adopted the National Integrity Framework and its associated integrity policies, which came into effect on 31 October 2022. This is an important step as it will assist in protecting our sport and members from integrity threats like harassment, bullying, abuse, illicit drugs, and competition manipulation. Moreover, the new policies replace and supersede Table Tennis Australia’s previous integrity policies, thereby ensuring that TTA is operating under a new and up-to-date framework.

TTA is working with all State/Territory Associations to implement the National Integrity Framework across the sport. Table Tennis Victoria (TTV) is pleased to advise that we have adopted TTA’s National Integrity Framework.

By implementing the National Integrity Framework and associated policies, TTA now has six new integrity policies in place:

  1. National Integrity Framework
  2. Competition Manipulation and Sports Wagering Policy
  3. Improper Use of Drugs and Medicine Policy
  4. Child Safeguarding Policy including the SA Addendum
  5. Member Protection Policy
  6. Complaints, Disputes, and Discipline Policy

On Wednesday 16 November 2022, Table Tennis Victoria adopted the Table Tennis Australia National Integrity Framework, and to ensure compliance with the Victorian Child Safe Standards, Table Tennis Victoria will also develop a "TTV Child Safeguarding Action Plan" based on the Commission for Children and Young People (CCYP) Compliance Indicators.

In line with the new National Integrity Framework policies, several integrity-focused Table Tennis Victoria By-Laws will be updated and replaced by a National Integrity Framework By-Law and there will be a broader TTV By-Law structure update before the end of 2022.
