NATA accreditation outside Australia

  • Print

NATA does not actively seek to offer accreditation services in the economies of ILAC MRA partners. This is in line with the principles of ILAC G21:2012 Cross Frontier Accreditation-Principles for Cooperation.

NATA may consider offering accreditation services outside of Australia where no national ILAC MRA partner is operating, or that partner does not offer accreditation for the activity performed by the potential applicant.

A decision would be based on a clear business case being demonstrated and that the safety and health of our staff and assessors can be assured.

Consideration may also be given to requests from Australian businesses operating offshore where accreditation by NATA is preferred. The same rules as above would also apply.

The same surveillance requirements and other accreditation practices as applied to Australian facilities are applied where offshore accreditation services are provided.

If you wish to enquire about making an application for an offshore facility please refer to How to become accredited.
