About Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ)

JAS-ANZ is a small non-government organisation with offices in Canberra and Wellington. The organisation employs more than 30 permanent employees and 100 contractors.

JAS-ANZ is a leading international accreditation authority that creates economic and social benefit in the sectors in which it operates. It doesn’t certify or inspect organisations, products or people, rather, it accredits the bodies that do. They do so by undertaking assessments in the following sectors:

  • Business and innovation
  • Health and human services
  • Product certification
  • Food and biological systems
  • Environment

Find out more and hear from current JAS-ANZ team members on what they love about working at the forefront of industry accreditation and having a direct impact on consumer confidence.
