To conform to AS/NZS ISO/IEC 17065 Conformity assessment – Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services – it is necessary for there to be independence between those performing tests to determine compliance and those determining the certification.
There are a number of commercial laboratories APAS specified tests and potential certificants should contact them for all pricing and supply matters.
The criteria required to be recognised by APAS as a testing authority are documented in APAS Document AP-D114.PDF (268 KB).
CSIRO has a number of accredited laboratories that undertake various physical, chemical and exposure tests.
CSIRO Infrastructure Technologies with our NATA accreditation has continued since 1957 as one of the laboratories that supports the industry with services required for APAS certification.
