Australian Technical Infrastructure Alliance Awareness Raising Event in Canberra

StanCert organises an Australian Technical Infrastructure Alliance Awareness Raising Event in Canberra on the 8th of September 2011

The Australian Technical Infrastructure Alliance (ATIA) is hosted by StanCert and 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)

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.

Everyday commercial transactions and international trade could not take place without the support of an effective technical infrastructure.

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.
