The Australian Tourism Accreditation ProgramThe Australian Tourism Accreditation Program is an important initiative of the Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania. The program is designed to raise the professionalism of the industry through the implementation of business management practices and standards. The Australian Tourism Accreditation Program is a business development tool that is based on Quality Assurance Principles and is aligned to the Australian and International Standards for Quality Management Systems - ISO 9002.
The program addresses many of the issues associated with the development of a Business Plan but focuses on those key elements that are part of the day to day function of any tourism business operations. It aims to assist every tourism business to improve the way it operates, in turn providing consumers and the industry with an assurance that a tourism operator is committed to quality assurance and customer service.
Tourism accreditation is industry driven to ensure the ongoing sustainability and best practices of tourism operators in Tasmania.
The Tourism Accreditation Program is open to all new and existing businesses that are involved in a tourism activity, there are over 1000 tourism accredited businesses in Tasmania.
