The Inspection Accreditation Advisory Committee (IAAC) within NATA has four vacancies for technical representation available. We are seeking expressions of interest from individuals with expertise in inspections that support Australia’s engineering inspections, with particular focus on lifting and pressure equipment, structures and machine safety.
The Inspection AAC provides input to NATA’s Inspection accreditation program in a way that represents the interests of accredited inspection bodies and the broader industry. NATA’s current accreditations in this area include accreditation of bodies performing inspections of pressure equipment (including design verification, fabrication and in-service inspections) and bodies performing inspections of lifting gear, machine safety and structures. It is anticipated this engagement will remain stable.
Applicants would be expected to have substantial experience within their area of inspection expertise. In addition, applicants must demonstrate a commitment to the principles of accreditation and practical experience with ISO/IEC 17020 would be considered an advantage.
AAC members serve on the committee in a voluntary capacity with meetings held approximately every 12-18 months. Outside of meetings NATA will engage with committee members as necessary, generally in the form of seeking technical advice.
The term of appointment for new members is five years. Existing members may re-nominate and the term of appointment for re-appointments is normally three years. Further information regarding involvement on the Inspection AAC may be obtained from the document ‘Role of the AAC, Chairman and Members’ available on the NATA website, www.nata.com.au
Expressions of interest detailing the candidate’s experience, including a resume, should be forwarded to Julian Wilson, Sector Manager Inspection.
The closing date for nominations is 12 May 2017. Successful nominees will be formally invited to participate in the activities of the Inspection AAC following the approval of NATA’s Board.
