About Smale Consulting Group



Smale Consulting Group is proud to be the first and only company in
Australia accredited to ISO 17020 by the National Association of TestingAuthorities (NATA) for Environmental Health, Food and Water Safety and Handling Inspection services including sampling and field-testing capabilities. Smale Consulting Group’s detailed scope of accreditation is available for review on the NATA website.

Governments and industries around the world are increasingly requiring the use of accredited inspection services. Inspection findings and outcomes contribute to product and asset management decisions, and it is essential they are reliable.

Interested parties including clients, regulators and users, often ask that inspection bodies meet the requirements of ISO/IEC 17020. Asset-critical information demands more than ‘trust us’ assurances.

NATA accreditation means that an inspection body has shown to an independent team of industry peers that it meets the requirements of ISO/IEC 17020 and competently performs the inspections as covered by the accreditation.

What is ISO/IEC17020?

ISO/IEC 17020 specifies the requirements for competent bodies performing inspection activities.

Inspection bodies conduct their activities for the purpose of providing information to their clients, whether internal or external, on compliance with regulatory and/or contractual obligations.
