NY628 - Queensland Nursery Industry Accreditation Officer

An initial application was submitted by the Queensland Nursery Industry Association (QNIA) to the Horticultural Research and Development Corporation (HRDC) on 14th May 1996. On the basis of preliminary approval advertisements were then placed for the position of Nursery Industry Development Officer (NIDO) with emphasis on functions associated with the Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia (NIASA) - see Appendix 1. All activities have principally been directed towards accreditation but for consistency the position has been titled Nursery Industry Development Officer rather then the more limiting Accreditation Officer.
