What is a NATA accredited Soil Testing Laboratory; and why does it matter?

FMG Research is the in-house Soil and Materials Testing Laboratory at FMG Engineering. Our expert team has been providing geotechnical and civil construction materials testing for more than 50 years.

What is NATA Accreditation?

NATA Accreditation is a globally recognised, peer-reviewed, Government endorsed accreditation. As a benchmark for technical competence. NATA accreditation covers testing, measurement, calibration, maintenance and inspection policies and procedures, ensuring that the soil testing and associated services delivered by FMG Research are compliant with current National and International standards.
