ISO/IEC 17025 - General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories

ISO/IEC 17025 is an international standard that specifies the general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. It outlines criteria for demonstrating technical competence, impartiality, and the ability to produce reliable and accurate results. Laboratories that achieve ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation are recognized for their proficiency in conducting testing and calibration activities across various fields and industries.

Certification Steps:

Determine the scope and objectives of your laboratory’s testing and calibration activities, specifying the types of tests or calibrations you will perform and the standards you will adhere to.

Familiarize yourself with ISO/IEC 17025 requirements, which include having a quality manual, conducting proficiency testing, defining roles and responsibilities, and committing to continual improvement. These requirements form the foundation of your laboratory’s competence.

Create a structured framework that integrates competence practices into your laboratory’s operations. This framework should encompass customized procedures and controls to meet your specific testing and calibration needs.

Ensure consistent implementation of competence practices throughout your laboratory, involving staff at all levels. Provide training and awareness programs to ensure everyone understands their roles in maintaining competence in testing and calibration.

Continuously monitor your laboratory’s testing and calibration processes, collect relevant data, and assess performance against competence objectives. Conduct internal audits and management reviews to identify areas for improvement and implement corrective actions. ISO/IE
