Use of logos

NATA accredited organisations are strongly encouraged to promote their accreditation by issuing NATA endorsed reports and by using the NATA logo.  As part of this process, it is each organisation’s responsibility to ensure that it describes its accreditation status accurately and stays within its Scope of Accreditation (SOA).

While we don’t mandate the issuing of NATA endorsed reports or use of logos, accredited organisations using these in publicity and advertising materials, technical literature, business reports, websites, quotes and tenders – enjoy a distinct market advantage including customer certainty, confidence and assurance regarding their products and services. 

Validity of logos

Where an applicant or accredited organisation engages with a new provider, it is recommended they confirm the provider’s accreditation directly with the accreditation body and not simply accept the report or certificate on face value.

It is also important that when an applicant or accredited organisation uses an external provider, they ensure the service being provided is appropriate for the intended purpose.

This creates certainty in both activity and report outcomes.

Misuse of NATA logos

While we actively encourage our accredited members to utilise and benefit from the use of NATA logos, we also ask them to be vigilant in identifying incorrect or unauthorised use.
