NATA Accreditation

TCA is accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) for:

  • Calibration of GPS Based In-Vehicle Units (IVU) for Speed Accuracy
  • Calibration of a Vehicle with Digital Speed Display

TCA’s NATA accreditation allows GPS based systems to be tested for speed accuracy.

Once a device is tested, it may then be used with confidence to perform tasks such as speed measurements based on GPS information.

Obtaining NATA Accredited Services

NATA accreditation is highly regarded and provides a means of determining, recognising and promoting the competence of facilities to perform specific types of testing and calibration, focussing on both technical competence and quality systems.
