Introducing the ATIA

The Australian Technical Infrastructure Alliance (ATIA) provides a single point of access to the combined capability, expertise and resources of the four core bodies responsible for Australia’s Standards and Conformance:

  • Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ)
  • National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA)
  • National Measurement Institute (NMI)
  • Standards Australia (SA)

These bodies have committed to a high degree of collaboration for the benefit of government, industry and the broader community within Australia and overseas.

Australia’s technical infrastructure is made up of systems, organisations and resources that operate in the background: improving everyday life; supporting and fostering new technologies; underpinning commerce; assisting productivity and growth; facilitating international trade and providing the basis for confidence.

Such infrastructure, comprising metrology, standards, accreditation, and conformity assessment also impacts on our everyday lives such as having confidence in the accuracy of a kilogram of meat or a litre of petrol, getting correct results from a blood test, the way seatbelts in a car operate and the safety of our food.

The four organisations that best guide these developments for Australia, make up the ATIA Members »
