What are consultations?
The National Boards undertake wide-ranging consultation on proposals that affect the professions.
From time to time, they release consultation papers, asking stakeholders to provide input that will help shape Registration Standards, Codes and Guidelines, and policies.
Listed below are links to the 'Current Consultations' sections of each profession:
Cross-Board consultation on common guidelines and Code of conduct
Released: 4 April 2013 Closes: 30 May 2013
The 14 National Boards in the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) are consulting 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 are also consulting on a revised Code of conduct (either the code shared by most National Boards, or for some Boards there is a profession-specific code). Boards which are not consulting on their code as part of this consultation are the Medical Board of Australia and Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
The following consultation paper includes the revised guidelines that all Boards are consulting on. It also includes the Code of conduct shared by most National Boards.
Below is a compilation of information about board-specific codes of conduct to assist stakeholders of multiple National Boards.
