ADIA is the peak business organisation representing manufacturers and suppliers of dental products. Our vision is for an industry that empowers oral health professionals to advance the health and wellbeing of all Australians...................... — ADIA Strategic Plan

Advocacy — Red tape reduction

The dental industry’s strength rests in the combination of small and large businesses that are profitable and have the freedom to be responsive to changes in the marketplace for dental products. Their capacity to supply quality dental products profitably is highly dependent on a pro-business environment which fosters innovation, minimises red tape and reduces excessive government taxes and charges.

Strategic priority —

Ensuring that government policy is supports the growth and profitability of the dental industry by minimising the financial and administrative burden.

Actions required by government —

Comprehensive taxation reform which reduces compliance costs and complexity;
Reducing the compliance and regulatory burdens for businesses;
Removal of regulatory duplication particularly between the commonwealth and states / territories;
Increased take-up of new technologies including electronic submission of government forms.

Advocacy partner —

ADIA’s partner in delivering outcomes across this policy area is the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AusChamber).

Industry benefits —

The direct outcome for ADIA member businesses are increased profitability, growth and job creation as a result of no longer needing to meet the cost of complying with excessive and sometimes redundant regulation.

This priority reflects ADIA's commitment to ensure a strong. dynamic and globally competitive Australian economy by advancing the cause of economic reform. The reforms set out above are part of a considered and balanced reform agenda that will achieve a number of outcomes including lowering and simplifying taxes, streamlining the federation, reducing the size of government, eliminating red-tape, improving efficiency and enhancing our national productivity.

Member Engagement —

ADIA provides leadership, strategy, advocacy and support. Our members set our agenda, fund our activities and directly benefit from the results. The issues that ADIA staff progress progresses at a parliamentary and departmental level are identified by members serving on the ADIA-BAC Business Affairs Committee and the ADIA-DRC Dental Regulation Committee.
