The Accreditation Process


The Accreditation Process

Access & Complete Application

  • As the application for accreditation is only available online, contact NARTA to obtain a username & password.
  • Complete the relevant sections of the application, uploading documents where indicated. Refer to the Help Text for assistance.
  • Complete the declaration and submit your application by clicking on the appropriate button.

Desk Assessment

  • Upon submission of your online application, a NARTA administrator will send the applicant an invoice for payment within the normal payment terms. They will also ensure that the application has been correctly completed and a desk assessment will be performed.
  • Upon completion of the desk assessment, a workplace assessment will be arranged.

Workplace Assessment

  • NARTA endeavours to perform a workplace assessment within 3 months of the submission of the application. Upon successful completion of the workplace assessment, a certificate will be issued, recommended & suggested actions will be discussed & the NARTA website will be updated.

Ongoing Review

  • During the life of an organisation's accreditation, the organisation will undergo annual review. If it is found that claims made (or specifically excluded) are not correct, accreditation will be withdrawn until such errors are rectified.
