ERC Process

The ASHM Board is currently doing a review of all the Expert Reference Committees structure, terms of reference, membership, relationships with other bodies and mechanisms for endorsement.

A new HCV Testing Policy ERC will be formed soon to progress future reviews.  

 Each ERC is a joint working party of the Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections Standing Committee (BBVSS) of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC). The ERC comprises of members from BBVSS of the AHPPC jurisdictional representation, clinical specialists, GPs and representatives from peak National community sector organisations.  

A larger communication network provides expertise in a range of areas to inform, provide feedback, direction and advice on specific areas within each policy.





Development of this site and the 2014 and 2017 revisions of the testing policies was supported by: Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing
