NATA accreditation in Analytical chemistry and Biological testing


The National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), Australia's role is the delivery of accreditation programs that facilitate a network of competent scientific and technical facilities throughout Australia, to meet national interest and public benefit objectives (NATA 2014).

The MDFRC has NATA accreditation in:

  1. Analytical chemistry for assessment of water quality (accreditation number:1400)
  2. Biological Testing for macroinvertebrate sampling, identification and enumeration (accreditation number:17064)

NATA provides independent assurance of technical competence through a proven network of best practice industry experts for customers who require confidence in delivery of their products and services. NATA formally recognises that these facilities produce reliable technical results (NATA 2015).

By receiving and maintaining NATA accreditation in our laboratories, clients can have confidence in the technical expertise of the work undertaken by the MDFRC.
