Naming Policy Consultation


The Dietitians Board is seeking feedback on its proposed Naming Policy.

The new Naming Policy outlines how the Board may publish the name of a dietitian and the details of an order or direction made about that dietitian under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 (HPCAA).

The need for the Board to develop this Naming Policy results from an amendment made by Parliament to the HPCAA earlier this year.

The amendment requires the Board and other authorities operating under the Act to publish a Naming Policy.

The Naming Policy is required to set out the principles and considerations that the Board must take into account when considering whether to publish an order or direction and to name the dietitian concerned.

We invite your feedback

The proposed Naming Policy is HERE.

Submissions are due Friday 25 January 2020 and should be sent to:
