The Office for Recreation and Sport recommends that state sport and active recreation organisations and regional sport associations aim to appoint one or two Member Protection Information Officer’s (MPIO).

The MPIO’s role is to provide appropriate advice to the organisation and affiliated clubs around their Member Protection Policy when issues arise. The MPIO is also 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.

The MPIO does not investigate or attempt to resolve a complaint.

To become an MPIO and be registered with the Australian Sports Commission a person must:

  • Register for the free online training on and complete all of the MPIO modules. Then save and print your certificate of completion.
  • Attend a free face to face MPIO training session which will be held at the Office for Recreation and Sport.
  • complete registration with the Australian Sports Commission (using the unique codes provided) following the completion of both the online and face to face courses

Your registration for this course must be endorsed by an appropriate person within your State Sport or regional association body.

Please ensure you bring your online training completion certificate with you to the face-to-face session.
