About O’Dwyer Accreditation

At O’Dwyer Accreditation, we’re passionate about showing laboratories how to operate efficiently and effectively and meet NATA requirements at the same time. People normally reach out to us for help when they are going for their first NATA accreditation, for help maintaining and improving their quality system, or because they’re struggling with NATA accreditation requirements.

We show organisations how to move from a culture of compliance to a culture of improvement.

We’re based in Melbourne and enjoy travelling interstate to work.
