Become a TAO

Recognition as a TAO is gained following an evidence based assessment which, if successful, results in an entity achieving the status of a Technically Assured Organisation (TAO).

The assessment:

•    evaluates the systems and processes that support the engineering and asset services that an entity is seeking to deliver 
•    covers the evaluation of evidence and relevant experience in the provision of self-assured engineering and asset services

The TAO assessment consists of five steps:

1.    initial engagement
2.    scoping and self-assessment
3.    authorisation assessment
4.    follow-on assessment site visits (optional)
5.    assessment finalisation
