With more than 2,200 members, the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association Ltd (AACMA) is the leading association of qualified acupuncture and Chinese medicine practitioners in Australia. Since 1973, AACMA has represented the profession and values high standards in ethical and professional practice.

In 2012, the Chinese medicine profession joined the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for the Health Professions. This is the same scheme that regulates medical practitioners, physiotherapists, chiropractors, dentists, nurses and midwives etc. Chinese medicine practitioners must now be registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) in order to offer acupuncture and Chinese medicine services to the public.
