The Chiropractic Board of Australia has developed codes and guidelines to provide guidance to the profession. These also help to clarify our views and expectations on a range of issues.
Guidelines are approved by the National Board and may be used as evidence of what constitutes appropriate professional conduct or practice for chiropractors in proceedings under the National Law or a law of a co-regulatory jurisdiction against a health practitioner.
Explore our website to view policies, codes, guidelines and position statements. For additional information on the Chiropractic Board of Australia’s guidelines on advertising please read the Statement on advertising.
Under Section 11 of the National Law, as in force in each state and territory, the Ministerial Council may issue a National Board with policy directions.
For more information, please see FAQ and Fact Sheets.
From time to time, the Chiropractic Board of Australia reviews and updates the codes and guidelines it developments to provide guidance to the profession.
The retired codes and guidelines have not been removed from the Board’s website because complaints or concerns made about chiropractors during the time the Board guidance was in effect may still be subject to the notification process.

**The Guidelines: Mandatory notifications about registered students have been updated on 29 June 2020 to include minor formatting and word changes and sections 39 and 40 of the National Law in Appendix A.
