What Does NATA Accreditation as a Collection Agency Mean for a Client?

The National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accreditation provides assurance to the client that the collection agency:

  • Uses appropriately trained staff to collect and/or test samples
  • Uses testing devices which have been verified by Australian laboratories to perform according to the stated claims of the manufacturer
  • Performs internal Quality Control testing as required by the relevant Standards
  • Participates in external Quality Assurance Programs (QAP) where the collection agency must test samples containing unknown levels of drugs and return their test results for assessment by the QAP
  • Has a program of internal audits and reviews to ensure the agency continually assesses its own performance
