Australian Medical Council - Code for Good Medical Practice
The AMC developed the Code - Good Medical Practice: A Code of Conduct for Doctors in Australia - on behalf of all state and territory medical registration boards. The Code has been recommended to individual state and territory medical boards, ahead of the introduction of national medical registration in mid-2010. Subject to the constraints of their existing legislation, state and territory boards can choose to endorse the Code in principle or adopt it to replace their existing codes. The AMC has also recommended the Code to the Agency Management Committee of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS), pending the establishment of the Medical Board of Australia.
