ATAS (Australian Travel Accreditation Scheme) is administered by the industry association, the Australian Travel Industry Association (ATIA). Agents and operators with ATAS accreditation are required to conduct business in compliance with Australian Consumer Law and in accordance with the ATAS Charter and Code of Conduct.
It is important to note ATAS accreditation represents a point-in-time assessment against the criteria of the ATAS Charter. While all care and due diligence is taken, ATIA makes no warranty, representation or guarantee that any ATAS member is solvent at any given time.
ATAS accreditation is a voluntary membership scheme and is not a government-administered body nor is it an insurance or compensation scheme.
