Equipment Safety Principles
The Equipment Safety Principles detail the requirements relating to Gymnastics Australia’s (GA) National Affiliation Standard 12 on equipment safety principles and procedures.
Gymnastics in Australia are committed to providing a safe environment and a high standard of service, for all members, participants and visitors. Key to this is the provision of quality, well maintained and up to date equipment for all programs within Clubs.
To this end, the Equipment Safety Principleshave been formulated to ensure that only appropriate equipment is acquired, existing equipment is well maintained and replacement guidelines seek to ensure that equipment provided for use in all programs is of a high quality and standard.
MPIO Principles & Implementation Timeline
The MPIO Principles & Implementation Timeline details the requirements and timing relating to compliance with the Gymnastics Australia (GA) National Affiliation Standard 7 on Member Protection Information Officers (MPIO).
Commitment to Member Protection is a fundamental expectation by government of all sports organisations within Australia. GA and its State Association Members all have Member Protection policies and procedures in place and the obligation flows through to all affiliated clubs.
The MPIO is an important part of an effective Member Protection policy and ideally every club would have a fully-trained MPIO operating within its club by 30th June 2017.

This policy ensures that all clubs seeking affiliation, or current clubs wishing to change their recognised name, can clearly understand the State Association’s position regarding club names.
