Company Profile

Who are we?

IV&V Australia are software testing specialists. The consultancy was formed in May 1996, with the aim of providing value-added software testing and independent verification & validation services to the Technology/IT and Defence industries. Our test processes are self-assessed to ISO 17025.

Our office is located in Crows Nest (Sydney) NSW.


Our consultants have significant experience in software testing and IV&V for various local and international companies, federal and state government departments and large and small commercial clients.

We have worked in a wide range of application areas including HI and SMD CCA testing for e-Health applications, biomedical systems, mobile applications, voting systems, e-commerce/webs, desktop applications, client/server (incl cloud applications) and embedded systems. 

Our consultants have experience with the full range of testing roles required on application development projects. In recent times, we have reduced our scope of operations to concentrate on conducting end-of-lifecycle product testing and providing software verification & validation support to primarily biomedical development companies dealing with a regulatory environment.

Our consultants are fully supported by IV&V Australia’s technical infrastructure, including management oversight, peer review and access to the IV&V Toolkit of test processes, templates and checklists.

Client Focus

We have a history of developing long-standing relationships with our clients. This is seen in the large amount of repeat business we achieve, with extensions to existing project contracts and with successive projects. The key benefits we provide to our clients include:

  • specialising in software testing and our consultants are all highly experienced in their field
  • a depth of experience in software testing and understand the issues and pitfalls.
  • a depth of experience in software V&V in a medical device regulatory environment.
  • a strong quality focus and process orientation in the work we do.
  • providing peer technical support at no extra cost.
  • our consultants are employees and they are all familiar with IV&V Australia’s methodologies and processes, as well as the domain areas of our regular clients.
  • a policy of assigning the same consultants to a client’s successive projects, whenever possible, so the client has the benefit of domain knowledge.
  • a policy of being highly visible in the work we do, through weekly status and risk reporting.
