Significance of NATA Accreditation in laboratory testing services
The National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) provides independent assurance of technical competence through a proven network of best practice industry experts. This accreditation is highly regarded as it formally recognises facilities across a range of industries that provide excellent standards of service in reliability, safety and efficiency in technical services.
The accreditation is granted to laboratories in compliance with ISO 17025 and the service-specific criteria, which is determined via an on-site assessment of resources, procedures and documentation. As part of gaining accreditation, Envirolab Services Melbourne was required to demonstrate that it can competently perform all activities included within the concerned class or field of accreditation.
The current scope of accreditation of Envirolab Services Melbourne can be found in the NATA website directory.
