AS/NZS 4801 Accreditation

NCS International Pty Limited (or NCSI) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia. NATA is the peak (and only government recognised) accreditation body for laboratory and testing centres in Australia, and has been operating since 1947. NCSI was formed in 1990 specifically to offer industry a choice of certification body for independent (or third-party) recognition against national and international management system standards eg ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment), AS /NZS 4801 (Safety), Food Safety (HACCP), and disability employment standards. We service all types of industries and businesses, from technical operations through to manufacturing, professional services, government business, and retail – large, medium and small. Safety Certification is recognition from an accredited, independent third party, that your organisation complies with a recognised standard detailing good safety management system principles.  Certification is a public demonstration of the organisation’s commitment to reduce and ultimately eliminate workplace injury.
