THE Australian Crime Commission has given the country's major sporting codes permission to confidentially notify the specific clubs suspected of engaging in doping.
"Once notified, a club may choose to make it publicly known that they have been notified," the ACC said in a statement.
The decision to allow the disclosure came after requests from the Australian Football League and National Rugby League.
Sport in Australia was rocked last week when the ACC released a report indicating sports doping was widespread among the major football codes.
Links between organised crime and professional athletes were also uncovered in the year-long ACC probe, codenamed Project Aperio.
