Cross-Board consultation on common guidelines

Released: 4 April 2013
Closed: 30 May 2013

The 14 National Boards in the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) consulted on the following proposed guidelines:

  • revisions to the Guidelines for advertising (common to all National Boards) 
  • a Social media policy (common to all National Boards), and 
  • revisions to the Guidelines for mandatory notifications (common to all National Boards).

Most Boards in the National Scheme also consulted on a revised Code of conduct (either the code shared by most National Boards, or for some Boards a profession-specific code), however the Medical Board of Australia did not taking part in the consultation. Instead, the Medical Board of Australia will review, and will be consulting on, its Code of conduct good medical practice separately.
