ANB Event Testing Program: All ANB members, regardless of category, may be subject to random testing (in or out of competition) at any ANB-sanctioned event.
Under the ANB Anti-Doping Policy, the Australasian Natural Bodybuilding ANTI-DOPING POLICY (see link above), any Bodybuilder that commits a doping offence is subject to the hearing process and sanctions of a seven-year ban for the first offence, and a life ban for a second breach.
During the sanction period Bodybuilders will:
- Be ineligible to compete in any ANB competition
- Ineligible to hold membership of ANB
- Have placing, trophies and awards won from the date of the doping practice withdrawn
Any ANB member that is arrested and lawfully charged with a steroid supply or possession charge, shall be banned from competition until after the court case has been determined. A lifetime ban will be issued if that member is subsequently convicted of those charges.
Retirement: Competitors are required to advise ANB in writing if they retire.
