ADIA Members Invited To Participate In Code Admin.
1st Dec 17
ADIA member businesses have the opportunity to strengthen the reputation of the dental industry as an ethical supplier of products by becoming involved in the committees that reviews the ADIA Code of Practice and considers complaints made under the code.
Key Issues For The Dental Industry —
In mid-2017 the membership of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) approved a new edition of the ADIA Code of Practice that provides a framework for the interaction between the dental industry and dental profession. The new version of the ADIA Code of Practice is effective from 1 January 2018.
The key to the success of the ADIA Code of Practice is a high level of member engagement in the review of the document and the complaints handling. It's in this context that an invitation is being extended to member businesses to get involved by nominating a representative to one or both of the following committees:
The meetings of these committees are typically held by teleconference and the time commitment isn’t great at around three hours per quarter. If your business would like to nominate a representative please download the following forms:

The involvement of members is a crucial aspect of building confidence across the entire dental community and patient groups that the dental industry is committed to ensuring that decisions made be on patient diagnosis and treatment options are based on sound clinical evidence, not driven by incentives or other influences.
Please note that nominations are due on 31 January 2018.
