Australia's world-class standards and conformance infrastructure underpins and supports virtually every aspect of our everyday life.
A number of organisations comprise Australia's standards and conformance infrastructure. These are:
- The National Measurement Institute (NMI)
- Standards Australia Limited
- The National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA)
- The Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ).
These organisations each have unique roles. Their complementary activities contribute to the national interest and public benefit.
This publication explains the individual and combined contributions of these organisations, and places the Australian infrastructure in the regional and international framework.
