The Board has adopted the Australian Psychological Society Code of Ethics for the profession.
The Psychology Board of Australia has developed various guidelines to provide guidance to the profession. These also help to clarify the Board’s views and expectations on a range of issues.
The Psychology Board of Australia has developed polices to provide guidance to the profession. These policies are to be read in conjunction with the relevant Codes and Guidelines.
The Board reviews its documents regularly, usually at least every five years. The next review date of a document is published at the end of the main document and provides a guide on when the next review is expected to begin. Review of Board publications is undertaken in accordance with the Consultation process of National Boards. The review process will usually start shortly before the published review date. However, a review may start earlier if necessary to ensure its relevance and workability in a changing regulatory environment, or later if other projects need to be prioritised. Timeframes for completion of reviews will vary according the complexity of the review and the timeframes of external contributors.
To enquire about the review status of a particular registration standard, guideline or policy, please contact the Chair of the Board – firstname.lastname@example.org.
