SATIC Membership includes free Australian Tourism Accreditation

Australian Tourism Accreditation

The Australian Tourism Accreditation Program (ATAP) is suitable for all tourism businesses. It is not an onerous or prescriptive process; it is designed to apply to each individual business and assist you in quality management practices.

ATAP not only allows you to update your businesses policies and procedures, it provides you with valuable links to business development tools, templates and business examples.

Ecotourism Certification

The ECO Certification program assures travellers that certified products are backed by a strong, well managed commitment to sustainable practices and provides high quality nature-based tourism experiences.

The ECO Certification Program is a world first and it has been developed to address the need to identify genuine nature and ecotourism operators.

Climate Action Certification

The Climate Action certification program is dedicated to reducing carbon emissions and assuring travelers that certified products are backed by a commitment to sustainable practices that help address climate change.

Climate Action certification is designed for all sectors of the tourism industry including hotels, attractions, tours, transport, restaurants, travel agents, tourism commissions and industry bodies.

Respecting Our Culture

The Respecting Our Culture (ROC) program encourages the tourism industry to operate in ways that respect and reinforce Indigenous cultural heritage and the living cultures of Indigenous communities.

ROC certified tourism operators are committed to protecting cultural authenticity and integrity, developing sound business practices, environmental protection and acknowledging Indigenous peoples' spiritual connection to the land and water.

Accreditation Updates

Accreditation Updates aim to keep accredited SATIC members up-to-date with industry information that may affect your business.

The immediate and most obvious benefit of being accredited is the knowledge that the logo is well known to most travellers and a sign that minimum industry standards are being maintained - and just as importantly, such standards are audited to ensure their maintenance.

From a financial perspective, being an accredited organisation, there are substantial discounts for marketing campaigns available from SATC and regional tourism bodies.
