The Australian Government, with ADIA's support, has put in place a regulatory framework for dental products that is based on a risk management approach designed to ensure public health and safety. Most of the dental products used in Australia are subject to regulations that control its importation and sale within Australia. Administered by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), an Australian Government agency, there is a proactive monitoring and compliance program to ensure that only dental products supplied through the proper channels are used – stiff penalties apply for those who breach the legislation.
ADIA members have the expertise and commitment to working with dentists and allied oral healthcare professionals to ensure that only quality product that complies with the relevant standard is available for you to use. To this end, ADIA also maintains cooperative working relationships with key stakeholders such as the Australian Dental Association (ADA).
