Australian athletes vying for the 2014 Winter Olympics as well as on other succeeding Olympic games have been slapped with stringent alcohol rules.

Kitty Chiller, chef de mission of the 2016 Australian Olympic Team, said on Tuesday that the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) has come up with a new set of rules applicable for both participating athletes and team officials.

Although consuming alcohol still remains to be a choice, under the new rules however, Australian team members will not be permitted entry in the Olympic Village or other designated team locations if they are drunk and behaving in inappropriate ways.

The team boss has the sole authority to impose sanctions on errant team members and athletes should the policy be breached.

Among the considered inappropriate and disruptive behaviour include:

- Being disorderly or argumentative

- Being bad tempered, aggressive or using offensive language

- Swaying, staggering or falling down

- Speech which is loud and boisterous

- Having rambling conversations

- Having difficulty in paying attention or comprehending others

- Annoying fellow team members and others

- Other conduct deemed by the Chef de Mission to be inconsistent with team standards.

"This is not about telling athletes they can't drink alcohol or celebrate their achievements responsibly - they are welcome to do so out of the (Olympic village)," Kim Crow, Olympic silver medallist and chair of the AOC Athletes' Commission, said in a statement.

"It is about respecting the athlete village as a place of performance. Every athlete deserves the chance to prepare for their competition without distractions."

"It is a good reminder that being an Australian Olympian is an honour that brings with it responsibility, and we expect athletes to wear the green and gold with pride - on and off the sporting field."

The new regulations comes after a behaviour review was conducted following the closing of the London Olympics. A member of the Australian swim team was found to have broken the rules in the use of alcohol and prescription drugs. The athletes likewise were found to have bullied other team members as well as broken curfews.

"This is about us providing a totally 100 per cent high-performance focused environment to allow athletes to best prepare for their event whether they are competing on day one or day 16 of the Games," Ms Chiller said.

"It's about recommending responsible consumption of alcohol and ensuring no other athlete in the village is disrupted by the irresponsible consumption of alcohol by other team members who have finished competing."
