AQ Audit Industry

Auditing & Inspection

Our international accreditations enable our customers to access the world's largest markets as we independently inspect, audit and certify your food products and processes from the farm right through to the supermarket shelf.

Joint Accreditation System of Australia & New Zealand (JAS-ANZ(external link) )

JAS-ANZ is the government-appointed accreditation body for Australia and New Zealand responsible for providing accreditation of conformity assessment bodies (CABs) in the fields of certification and inspection.

International Organic And Sustainable (IOAS(external link) ) Accreditation

The IOAS is an international specialist accreditation and assessment body focusing its efforts to build sustainable futures for people and the planet. AsureQuality has accreditation with IOAS(external link) for standards we assess and certify such as the Textile Exchange(external link) ’s Responsible Wool Standard (RWS(external link) ) and IFOAM.

AsureQuality's accreditation by JAS-ANZ(external link) and IOAS(external link) demonstrates our competence and independence as a CAB.
