Minister for Fair Trading Anthony Roberts today welcomed a decision by the Administrative Decisions Tribunal (ADT) to order the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN) to change its name on the grounds it is misleading. The ADT has upheld NSW Fair Trading’s direction to the AVN to change its name. Mr Roberts said Fair Trading had acted in the public interest by requesting the AVN change its name, based on claims the name is unacceptable under the Associations Incorporation Act 2009.“Fair Trading acted in this matter after receiving numerous complaints, including from the Australian Medical Association, that the AVN name was misleading given its overwhelming focus on the publication of anti-vaccination messages and information,” Mr Roberts said.“The time has come for AVN to find a name which reflects its anti-vaccination stance.

Nice! Maybe they could change their name to the NKAN (Needlessly Killing Australians Network).
