We are audited by NATA regularly to ensure that the quality of our work continues to comply with the terms of our accreditation.

What does the testing involve?

  • We write a set of tests for a pre-release version of developed software against its requirements
  • Alternatively, we review (and update) tests that you have prepared to ensure that they are correct and fit for purpose
  • We execute the tests - usually a number of dry runs then a final test on the release candidate
  • We produce a NATA-endorsed test report.

Why use an accredited test lab?

  • By using an accredited lab and a reputable company, you can be confident that your product has been systematically tested and that the results you receive are objective and accurate.
  • Our clients find that these independent 3rd-party endorsed reports are very helpful as part of their marketing strategies to their clients and for their submissions to regulatory bodies.
