ADIA Members Invited To Participate In Code Admin.

1st Dec 17

Summary —

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:

ADIA-CAC Code Administration Committee

The role of the ADIA-CAC Code Administration Committee is to provide advice and guidance on matters associated with implementing the ADIA Code of Practice and its ongoing review. The committee also reviews industry training that is directed at both increasing awareness of, and compliance with, the Code. [Read More]

ADIA-CCC Code Complaints Committee 

The ADIA-CCC Code Complaints Committee operates under strict rules set out in the ADIA Code of Practice and it is tasked with hearing complaints from members, non-members and the general public regarding the behaviour of member businesses and their employees. [Read More]

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:
