National Association of Testing Authorities
The National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia (NATA) provides a foundation for confidence in Australia's calibration, testing, and inspection activities. NATA technical auditing (accreditation) also underpins the certification of a range of products and services. NATA adds value to thousands of such services in business, industry and government, both in Australia and internationally.

"Receiving this accreditation confirms our commitment to safe and sustainable procedures," commented Stuart Rennie, Fendercare Marine Australia Rope and Rigging Supervisor. "It is a vote of confidence in the best practices that we adopt and further supports our position as a key supplier to the energy industry."
