ISO/IEC 17025 - Requirements for Testing and Calibration Laboratories

ISO/IEC 17025 is an international standard that specifies the general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. The standard is used by laboratories to demonstrate their capability to consistently produce valid results. It is also used by customers, accreditation bodies, and regulators to assess a laboratory's technical competence. There are two main sections in ISO/IEC 17025 – Management Requirements and Technical Requirements. Management requirements are primarily related to the operation and effectiveness of the quality management system within the laboratory. Technical requirements address the competence of staff, methodology, test/calibration equipment, and test methods.

Benefits of ISO 17025 Accreditation

There are many benefits of ISO 17025 accreditation, including:

  • Improving the quality of your laboratory's results
  • Demonstrating the technical competence of your laboratory to customers, regulators, and accreditation bodies
  • Enhancing the credibility of your laboratory
  • Improving communication between the laboratory and customers
  • Facilitating the acceptance of results by customers, regulators, and accreditation bodies
  • Improving the efficiency of your laboratory's operations
