NATA. Adding business and community value

We are pleased and proud to add genuine value both directly and indirectly to Australian businesses and the community.


For our members, our accreditation services improve the consistency and quality of their products and services. It helps improve their performance, drives consistency, mitigates risk, facilitates trade, and increases public confidence in the products and services they offer.

As part of our mandate, we are always seeking to accredit suitable industry organisations and facilities. The continuing growth of accredited organisations increases the products and services that can be confidently used in the community.


For the public, our accreditation services provide confidence. From buying food, electrical appliances and even toys for children – NATA accreditation provides the assurance our members’ products and services can be used with safety and confidence. 


NATA enjoys a global reputation for its training courses. In addition to national training, we play a leading role in the international accreditation community and have trained organisations from over 20 countries in Standards, quality, auditing and assessor knowledge and skills. 


Despite being a not-for-profit, member-owned organisation, we believe it is important for government, members and the community to see the commercial value of what we do.

A recent study by the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), identified the monetary value NATA activities bring to the Australian economy. While there is general recognition that NATA adds indirect value, the report noted a monetary value of over $420 million per annum.

While a significant contribution, the less recognised value and attributes this brings to our members and the community is also of immense value.

As noted by Emeritus Professor Roy Green in his preface to the report:

“What is clear is that accreditation in this context provides both direct and indirect benefits to consumers of intermediate and final goods and services, and hence to the economy and society more widely.”
