Are YOU an Industry Pioneer?

For the first time, Australian Dental Industry Association Members are invited to nominate themselves or a Member candidate they feel embodies the title of ADIA Industry Pioneer.

The Industry Pioneer Award was introduced in 2021 and bestowed by the Board to Jeffery Cheetham, founder of Southern Dental Industries (SDI).

NSW EPA seeks ADIA members' feedback

Deadline: Monday Sept 20


A reminder to ADIA members that the deadline for feedback into the review of the NSW Radiation Control Act 1990 is next Monday 20 September.

The consultation process for the review of NSW’s radiation control legislation is being undertaken by the NSW Environmental Protection Authority (EPA).

The EPA developed an Issues Paper as part of the review, in consultation with the Radiation Advisory Council and NSW government agencies.

Click here to read the Issues Paper and to make a submission.

The NSW Government is reviewing the Act to ensure that the objectives are still valid and the terms of the Act are able to secure those objectives.

The Act regulates radioactive substances and equipment in New South Wales, to ensure that radiation is used, stored and disposed of safely.

The EPA has responsibilities under the Act, including issuing licences to manage or use radioactive substances and equipment, and regulating radiation practices in NSW.

If you would like to discuss the review or have any questions, please contact Mr Mark Carey, EPA Principal Policy Officer on 9995 5737 or email
