Australian Tourism Accreditation Program Victoria

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 to 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.

The Tourism Accreditation ‘tick’ highlights tourism businesses that are endorsed by the tourism industry as quality assured.

Accredited Tourism Businesses are recognised as professional, ethical and reliable operators, which deliver high quality tourism experiences.

What are the benefits

  • Displaying the ‘tick’ provides a competitive marketing advantage and increased consumer confidence.
  • Business tools and templates to assist in best practice management.
