EFAD Standards

Revised Definition of a Dietitian
Revised Dietetic Competence and the 6 Domains of Competency

International Code of Ethics and Code of Good Practice for Dietetics was adopted by EFAD September 2008
International standards are not meant to replace any national standards that exist, but are meant to put on paper those important matters to which we can all agree, so that National Dietetic Associations who have their own, can still commit to the sentiments of any internationally agreed code.  They represent the common ground of dietetics around the world.

European Pedagogic Standards for Practice Placement 
The development of these pedagogic standards has used practice placement/work based learning data, the EFAD Standards for Practice Placements (EFAD, 2010) and also drew on best practice from other professions and agencies. The ultimate goal is to provide guidelines for practice placement teachers, aimed at
the achievement of the optimum degree of quality, standards and outcomes with regard to practice placement learning facilitated by the teacher.
