ADIA Code of Practice — Key documents

.
The Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA), and its membership are keen to ensure that decisions on management (including treatment options) for health needs are based on sound clinical evidence, not driven by incentives or other influences. To this end, the ADIA Code of Practice was endorsed by the membership as a means of ensuring that a self-regulatory approach does not allow promotional activities to compromise the quality use of therapeutic products and to minimise cost pressures on the health system.

There are a number of documents published by the ADIA and the Australian government that have an impact on the promotion of dental products and advertising of the same, including:

ADIA Code of Practice —

ADIA Code of Practice — Edition 2 [PDF]
ADIA Code of Practice — Edition 1 [PDF]

Australian Government —

TGA — Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code [EXT. LINK]
ACCC — False and misleading advertising guidance [EXT. LINK]

The ADIA Code of Practice sets out the standards appropriate to the various forms of relationships entered into by ADIA members in their dealings with other parties in the Australian healthcare environment. The ADIA Code of Practice is not intended to supplant or supersede Australian Federal or State law, or professional codes, including those that may be applied by individual companies. These may impose particular additional requirements upon members or healthcare professionals who engage in interactions of a professional nature.

The dental industry should also acknowledge that the ADIA Code of Practice is to be applied in the spirit, as well as in the letter of the document.
