ADIA is the peak business organisation representing manufacturers and suppliers of dental products. Our vision is for an industry that empowers oral health professionals to advance the health and wellbeing of all Australians...................... — ADIA Strategic Plan

Member Engagement —
ADIA-CAC Code Administration Committee

Businesses that belong to the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) must adhere to the ADIA Code of Practice which seeks to ensure that decisions by dental professionals concerning management (including treatment options) of patient health needs are based on sound clinical evidence, not driven by incentives or other influences. To ensure that the ADIA Code of Practice remains relevant to the businesses that manufacture and supply dental products, the ADIA-CAC Code Administration Committee is convened.

The ADIA-CAC committee is established and operates pursuant to provisions within the ADIA Code of Practice and the committee is tasked with the following:

Review Implementation —

Accept feedback from ADIA members, staff, and lawyers on issues associated with acceptance and implementation of the Code.

Education & Training —

Ensure that education and training on the Code is conducted for, and by, members to raise awareness and compliance with the Code.

Annual Reporting —

Report annually on the complaints and outcomes received under the Code.

The ADIA-CAC committee typically meets twice per year and much of the committee’s work is undertaken electronically with the secretariat functions being provided by ADIA national office staff. Committee members are, uniquely for ADIA, elected at each annual general meeting and the composition is as follows:

ADIA-CAC Code Complaints Committee Members —

Greg Whiteley — Whiteley Corporation (Committee Chair)
Noah Shroot — Ark Health
Peter O'Leary — Gunz Dental

Arrangements associated with administration of the ADIA Code of Practice broadly align with those of the eight other industry associations in the therapeutic products sector, with each code sharing both a common set of high-level principles common to each industry association’s code in addition to complaints handling and administrative processes.
