This chapter describes psychological ethics in Oceania, mainly in Australia and New Zealand. It traces the chronology of the development of formal codes of ethics for practicing psychologists, their rationales, and their applications. The chapter considers specifically the relevance, development and application of codes to the various indigenous populations in the region. The final section of the chapter considers the most recent development in Australia, namely the introduction of national accreditation and registration for health professions, including psychologists and the implications of this for psychological ethics and for New Zealand.
