THE Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority today met with Essendon players as part of its inquiry into the possible use of banned substances.

Essendon chairman David Evans said it was an important step in the investigation.

"ASADA outlined the process for the investigation to continue, including interviews with players to determine if a prohibited substance had been administered," Evans said in a statement.

"I know our members and the football community want answers, and I ask that the club be allowed time to cooperate with the ongoing investigation."

ASADA met with the players informing them about their rights and entitlements during probe into alleged use of banned supplements during the 2012 home and away season.

The investigation follows the release of a damning Australian Crime Commission report which found wide-spread use of performance enhancing drugs in Australian professional sporting codes.

MEANWHILE, the AFL has bolstered its integrity unit adding a new full-time employee to its ranks this week.

Two part-time employees will also be upgraded to full-time as part of the AFL's clamp down on the use of performance enhancing and illicit substances in the sport.

The integrity unit is set to conduct background checks of all AFL club employees, contractors and consultants in the coming weeks.

AFL medical directors will also begin meetings with club doctors to review practices and audit clubs' use of supplements and other treatments.
