Introduction of consulting services ISO/IEC 17025:2017 – General requirements for the competence of laboratories and calibration

Are you interested in improving your laboratory quality management system and calibration? Let us help you implement ISO/IEC 17025:2017 – a common requirement for the competence of laboratories and calibrations.

What is ISO/IEC 17025?

ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is an international standard that specifies general requirements for the competence of laboratories and calibrators. This International Standard provides a framework for laboratory operations and management, including the quality management system, personnel requirements, testing and calibration methods, equipment and facilities, and reporting. report results. In addition, ISO/IEC 17025:2017 includes requirements for measurement uncertainty, traceability of measurements, and handling of laboratory samples.

Compliance with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is often required by regulatory bodies, customers and accreditation bodies to ensure the reliability and validity of laboratory results. Areas of laboratory accreditation include mechanical testing, electro-electronic testing, biological testing, chemical testing, construction testing, non-destructive testing, calibration and metrology, and pharmaceutical testing.
