The Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) helps markets work better by providing internationally recognised accreditation services that create economic benefit.
Accreditation has many flow-on benefits throughout the market chain for business, regulators and government by:
- reducing compliance and transaction costs,
- reducing risk,
- streamlining operations,
- breaking down barriers to trade, which provides greater access to foreign markets; and
- providing assurance that goods and services sold are safe and can be used for their intended purpose.

Accreditation adds value to the ever growing and increasingly complicated market chain in many ways, including by providing a symbol of assurance that certifiers and inspectors are independent and competent to perform their duties.
Accredited certification and inspection of products, processes and people—called conformity assessment—has a ripple effect through the market chain, right to the consumer. It gives consumers confidence that their purchases meet specified standards and are quality assured. This includes retailers, wholesalers and individual consumers.
At JAS-ANZ, we do not certify or inspect organisations, products or people; rather, we accredit the bodies that do. We do so by developing the assessment criteria certifiers and inspectors must meet to become accredited under these themes:
- business and innovation
- health and human services
- product certification
- food and biological systems
