Membership — The application process

Not every business can join the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) as there is an expectation that all members demonstrate a commitment to customer service and statutory compliance.

The process of admitting a business to membership is fair, transparent and applied to all new applications. It is set out below:

Step 1

Application received and checked for completeness

Once you have submitted your application it is checked to ensure that it is complete and that all mandatory fields have been completed. If you have inadvertently applied for the wrong category of membership or forgot to include all details you will be asked for these. It is here that your business must pay the (non-refundable) application fee.

Step 2

Business details confirmed

This stage verifies the credentials of the applicant. The details such as the business' ABN, trading address, Director's name, business' legal structure and (where required) details of TGA Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods entries are verified against details held in ASIC and TGA registers.

Step 3

ADIA Board considers application

The application is considered by the ADIA Board with a decision made in the context of the ADIA Constitution and bylaws. If the business meets the eligibility criteria and accepts the ADIA Code of Practice and other requirements of membership, an application will not be refused.

Step 4

Fees paid

The applicant receives an invoice for the fees that are calculated on a pro-rata basis and once paid the membership application process is complete.

The application process is clearly set out in the ADIA Constitution and bylaws and has been developed in the context of the Competition and Consumer Act (Cth) 2010 and other statutory obligations under which ADIA operates.
