SETTING THE STANDARDS FOR EXCELLENCE

Standards are crucial to our daily lives. They apply to the food we eat, thewater we drink, the products and services we use. In today's increasinglycomplex world, maintaining standards is more important than ever.

The National Association of Testing Authorities Australia (NATA) is the nation'sleading body assessing the competence of organisations implementingstandards across a broad range of social and commercial fields, from miningand construction materials to health and pathology services.

As the basis for national and international agreements, these benchmarksare vital for trade, risk mitigation and waste reduction. As the foundations bywhich business, government and consumers can make informed decisions,they deliver a healthier and safer community for everyone.

CHEMICAL TESTING

For you as the customer, the NATA-endorsement we provide on our calibration certificates is there to provide prima facie evidence that the measurement results within the report have been issued under the laboratory's NATA Accreditation. Hence, you can have the confidence that the calibrations have been undertaken by competent staff using sound science/ engineering as verified by NATA's peer assessment processes.
