2014 - 2015 Annual Report of the Marketing in Australia of Infant Formula

Page last updated: 09 August 2016

Following the closure of the Advisory Panel on the Marketing in Australia of Infant Formula (APMAIF) in November 2013, a new model for managing complaints in relation to the Marketing in Australia of Infant Formula: Manufacturers and Importers Agreement (MAIF Agreement) was developed by the St James Ethics Centre (now the Ethics Centre), an independent not-for-profit organisation, in consultation with the Department of Health, the Infant Nutrition Council and other key stakeholders. The independent MAIF Complaints Tribunal was appointed by The Ethics Centre and has been fully operational since December 2014.

This is the Tribunal’s inaugural Annual Report and is for reporting on the 2014-15 financial year - its first year of operation. The report contains information on the activities of the Tribunal and the complaints arising under the MAIF Agreement. The Annual Report is distributed to stakeholders and interested groups, and published on the Department of Health website. A report for the 2013-14 years was not published due to the disbandment of the APMAIF and the establishment of the new MAIF Tribunal, however the 2014-15 Annual Report includes one complaint from the 2013 year.
Note: The views expressed in the report are those of the MAIF Tribunal; this is not a Department of Health report.
