ISO/IEC 17025 specifies the general requirements for the competence to conduct tests and/or calibrations, including sampling. It covers testing and calibration quality systems using standard methods, non-standard methods, and laboratory-developed methods.

ISO/IEC 17025:2017 consists of five elements: Scope, Normative References, Terms and Definitions, Management Requirements, and Technical Requirements. The two main sections are Management Requirements and Technical Requirements. Management Requirements are primarily related to the operation and effectiveness of the laboratory’s quality management system. Technical Requirements includes factors that determine the correctness and reliability of the tests and calibrations performed by the laboratory.

This ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Implementation Workshop uses practical examples to help participants understand how to implement various aspects of a laboratory management system, and includes training on:

  • Benefits of ISO 17025
  • Management requirements
