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.
An initial committee has been formed to provide direction and participation in various industry sector meetings.
