APAN is a new-generation industry-standard body/association, representing the needs of medical and non-medical practitioners who specialise in skin and age management as well as cosmetic tattooists.

We operate and are accessible 9-5pm Monday to Friday and our only business is to provide solutions for business growth, professional development for practitioners and to represent the needs of our industry with the Government and regulatory bodies.  We actively participate on working groups in the design of curriculum development with Skills IQ, several universities in developing degree programs for our industry, as well as RTOs in their development of new qualifications to better meet industry needs.  We were also active members of the ARPANSA working group for regulations in the use of IPLs and Lasers for cosmetic purposes.

We regularly communicate with Federal and State Governments, the Australian Taxation Officer, State Health Departments, Local Councils, NICNAS, TGA, ARPANSA, ASQA, TEQSA and Skills IQ.  We are recognised and regularly accessed by all these institutions for our extensive knowledge, industry intelligence and expertise in the area of industry needs, standards and education.
