Member Protection Information Officers

Member Protection Information Officers play an important role in sport. They provide information and guidance on complaints procedures - they are the 'go to' person if you want to discuss problems at your club/association, particularly if you are considering making a formal complaint.

They do not handle the complaint. The MPIO is a person who has satisfied their state's or territory's requirements and is responsible for providing information about a person's rights, responsibilities and options to an individual making a complaint or raising a concern, as well as support during the process.

Lodging A Complaint

Below are some simple tips to remember when considering lodging a complaint with Sport Integrity Australia.

  • Anyone can make a complaint.
  • Only complaints relating to allege breaches of prohibited conduct under the National Integrity Framework can be submitted to Sport Integrity Australia.
  • Complaints can only be actioned if the person who allegedly committed the behaviour is bound by our sport (i.e. they must have agreed to be bound by the policy via membership or agreement).
  • Complaints relating to selections, governance, personal grievances, or code of conduct are not covered under the National Integrity Framework. Complaints of this nature should be submitted via the relevant Policy process or email [email protected]
