Who are the NAMC?
The National Association of Methamphetamine Contamination (NAMC) is an association created to provide the best industry advice. The NAMC ensures that all members adhere strictly to all current industry standards, guidelines and the Code of Practice (2019). The directors represent each aspect of methamphetamine contamination (Testing, Decontamination, Hygiene, Training and Research) are all members with a high degree of knowledge and experience in their respective fields. All clients engaging a full member or higher of the NAMC, can be confident the service provider practices best industry standards.
The NAMC has been formed with the aim of resolving the current challenges that present within the Australian methamphetamine contamination industry. Our mission is to bring consistency to the client with regards to information, practices, and costs. Furthermore, we aim to eliminate unscrupulous activity, poor customer service, false information, and client exploitation. The NAMC will be the beginning of the pathway towards a regulated and legislated industry to protect the health and safety of all Australians with regards to Methamphetamine Contamination.
Continued Development of Industry Standards & Best Practices
The NAMC supports its members by promoting the development of industry standards and educating its members on these practices. Consumers can feel more confident that their service provider is operating ethically and is capable of meeting these standards when carrying out methamphetamine testing and decontamination services on their properties.
The NAMC wishes to work together to achieve national industry standards, lobby for legislation, educate and engage with the local and federal government to produce a reliable & regulated industry. We are looking to engage state health departments and potentially act as a mediation service to bring about nationally unified standards.
