Accreditation as a Recognised Testing Authority - Australian Government

Description

NATA accreditation provides authoritative recognition of the technical competence of a facility for the range of activities it offers supporting industry.  These activities may include testing, calibration, inspection, reference material production, provision of proficiency testing services, medical imaging and compliance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) principles.

Accreditation is a means of assessing, in the public interest, the technical competence and integrity of businesses and organisations that offer these types of services. Accreditation is distinct from certification, which focuses on overall compliance with systems and products standards rather than technical competence.

In some sectors, it is a requirement to obtain accreditation before offering certain services.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
