The hearing, which started yesterday at a private property on Balmoral Avenue in St Andrew, is taking place behind closed doors.
The 31-year-old Campbell-Brown is facing a three-member Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association disciplinary panel being led by retired Chief Justice Lensley Wolfe.
According to information reaching The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre, not much was accomplished on day one.
During the hearing it was revealed that several crucial documents such as the chain of custody forms for the sample taken from the athlete as well as witness statements had not been prepared and presented.
Campbell-Brown reportedly tested positive for a banned diuretic and accepted a provisional suspension in June, missing the World Championships in August, where she would have attempted to defend her 200-metre world title.
Campbell-Brown, the most decorated female Jamaican athlete in history, is being represented by attorney P.J. Patterson, a former Prime Minister of Jamaica.
