Recognised test laboratories

Laboratories in Australia

The National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) is the Australian peak body for accreditation of laboratories for testing to electrical safety standards or to energy efficiency standards.

You should determine what type of testing you need (electrical safety or energy efficiency) and what type of product you have and then contact NATA who can inform you of all laboratories they have accredited to conduct that work.

Details of laboratories in Australia and New Zealand can be obtained by contacting NATA.

Laboratories outside Australia

The Electrical Safety Office may accept test reports from Laboratories that operate outside Australia. These test laboratories should have appropriate accreditation.

To ensure minimal delays in the processing of your application the accreditation should be from an accreditation body that has a mutual recognition with NATA, and the test report supplied should indicate the laboratoryӳ accreditation.

Details of NATA's Mutual Recognition Arrangements with overseas national laboratory accreditation bodies can be obtained by contacting NATA.

The Electrical Safety Office may also accept test reports from laboratories with accreditation under the International Electrotechnical Commission IECEE scheme for Recognition of Results of Testing to Standards for Safety of Electrical Equipment "CB Scheme", these reports should be accompanied by a corresponding "CB" Certificate.
