Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme, Australia (NIASA) is the national nursery industry Best Management Practice (BMP) program for production nurseries, growing media manufacturers and greenlife markets. The NIASA program consists of a set of guidelines detailing industry BMP for crop hygiene, crop management, water management and general site management. To gain and maintain formal NIASA Accreditation, businesses must undergo an independent audit on an annual basis to ensure the integrity of the NIASA program is maintained. Once NIASA Accredited, the business has formal recognition of their commitment to continuous improvement underpinned by a professional system to reduce business risk.
The NIASA logo represents:
- Consistent product quality and performance
- A professional workplace open to continuous improvement
- Improved profitability and efficiency within the workplace
- Compliance to a standard through independent auditing and evaluation.
The NIASA program underpins the Australian Plant Production Standard – a holistic system designed to ensure a sustainable future for the Australian nursery industry.
