C) CAMS has a zero tolerance for illegal gambling and competition-fixing.

D) CAMS recognises that in limited circumstances Team Orders may be given and acted upon, but not for illegitimate purposes.

E) CAMS may engage the necessary technical expertise to administer, monitor and enforce this Policy.

F) The purpose of this Policy is to:

(i) protect and maintain the integrity of the Sport;
(ii) protect against any efforts to impact improperly the result of any Event; and
(iii) adhere to the National Policy on Match-fixing in Sport.

G) The conduct prohibited under this Policy may also be a criminal offence and/or a breach of other applicable laws or regulations. This Policy is intended to supplement such laws and regulations. It is not intended, and should not be interpreted, construed or applied, to prejudice or undermine in any way the application of such laws and regulations. Relevant Persons must comply with all applicable laws and regulations at all times.
