The Airtightness Testers’ Association (ATA) represents individuals registered by The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) to carry out air tightness tests in the UK. Testing is carried out in accordance with the relevant building regulations; Part L1 in England and Wales, Section 6 in Scotland and Part F1 in Northern Ireland.
The association was formed at the start of 2012; membership is open to all airtightness testers and anyone interested in the air tightness testing industry can join as an associate member.
Airtightness testing is a new industry and the ATA are fully involved in how air tightness testing will be carried out in the future. To develop a robust future we need the support and input from all testers so please forward your ideas or complaints to us.
