More about CSIRO
Avaliable language options:
We provide an independent certification process for the materials and infrastructure industries. We operate approval and certification schemes for paints and coating products, painting contractors, fire detection and suppression systems and self-drilling fasteners.
We specialise in the 'verification of conformity', whereby the extent to which a product, process or service fulfils specified requirements is systematically examined. These requirements can be part of a national or international standard, or they can be a specification or code of practice that has been widely adopted by an industry sector as a de facto standard.
We can also act as the facilitator for the industry scheme, bringing parties together, obtaining agreement on technical requirements, acting as manager of the scheme or verifying compliance.
Our services include:
Our service is independent of any testing bodies, but recognises certain testing bodies as complying with specified criteria and having equipment, skills, expertise and quality assurance systems to undertake conformity evaluation assessments.
We carry out ongoing surveillance testing to confirm continuing compliance to requirements during the life of the certification.
We currently operate the following schemes:
Each scheme is administered by a technical panel comprised of representatives of manufacturers, end users and verification services. The technical panel meets regularly to resolve any verification submission issues and to set policy and direction for the scheme.
We offer services and contract-based research to business, industry and government.
