About the Role

The National Asthma Council’s Sensitive Choice® program are looking for a new Panel Board Member.

Who we are?

Sensitive Choice® is a community service program created by the National Asthma Council Australia for all of us who want to breathe purer, cleaner, fresher air and reduce allergic reactions.

The program is designed to help consumers identify asthma and allergy-aware products, community-conscious companies use the Sensitive Choice® symbol on their packaging. You’ll find that reassuring blue butterfly on hundreds of products – from bedding to building products, from cleaning agents to carpets, air purifiers and vacuum cleaners to the very paint you put on your walls.

What we do? 

The Product Advisory Panel considers whether the product is suitable to participate in the program and carry the Sensitive Choice® logo. This involves the Panel being satisfied by evidence produced by the manufacturer or supplier of the product that the product is not harmful and demonstrates a potential benefit for people with asthma or allergies.

The Product Advisory Panel assesses products based on the research supplied and against other current and credible research available worldwide. It is important to note that the Panel is not comparing products against competitor products and approval does not mean the approved product is better than all other similar products.

What we need?

Recently one of our panel member, a Chemistry Specialist in New Zealand had finished their contract, and National Asthma Council are looking to find a new specialist with a chemistry background and an interest in respiratory health, asthma and or allergies.

Additional information:

  • The Advisory position on the panel is a volunteer role based on a 2 year contract
  • The panel meet on the last Wednesday of every second month to review products and services presented, these meeting usually go for between 1 and 2 hours
  • An additional few hours are required prior to each meeting so review the products and services before being discussed at each meeting
  • Meetings are based in our South Melbourne office with a number of panel members calling in via teleconference
