IVD Australia Code of Conduct Review

Invitation to make a Submission

Thank you for your commitment to the Code of Conduct of IVD Australia. 

You may be aware that the Code is required to be externally reviewed every three years. The review will lead to a revised edition of the Code in 2018.  As an organisation with an interest in the interaction between healthcare professionals and the in vitro diagnostics industry, I invite you to consider making a written submission to the review. Submissions are welcome from the healthcare sector, government, consumer groups and the in vitro diagnostics industry.

If you would like to make a submission, an online submission template is available. We have also prepared a hard copy of the submission template. A copy of the new, tracked changes, Code Edition 3, plus a side-by-side comparison of the Code Editions 2 and 3 to assist your comments.


Please forward your submission by June 15, 2018.

Submissions can be:

Secretary to the Code Review Panel

The Economic Value of Pathology: Achieving Better Health, and a Better Use of Health Resources

On Tuesday April 12, 2016 Pathology Awareness Australia launched an exciting new report at a pathology laboratory in central Sydney as part of our ongoing work to build understanding of pathology in the community.

Written by the Centre for International Economics, it is the first report in Australia to take a detailed look at the financial savings and broad benefits that pathology provides to the health system and patients. Focusing on the examples of diabetes, heart disease and bowel cancer, it highlights the central role of pathology in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.

All our activities are focused on member-value; ensuring that government understands, and acts upon, the value of the Australian IVD Industry; and making sure industry’s voice is heard and respected.
