Lab testing with ISO/IEC 17025: 2017
WHAT IS ISO/IEC 17025?
"ISO/IEC 17025: General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories", is applicable for laboratories of any size and sector performing calibrations and/or testing.
Accreditation to this standard shows that you operate a quality system, are technically competent and can generate technically valid results, instilling trust and demonstrating reliability to your customers.
It also helps facilitates wider acceptance of results internationally, with test reports and certificates accepted from one country to another without the need for further testing.
WHO IS ISO 17025 FOR?
All laboratories, whether owned and operated by government, industry or any other organization.
Further organisations that benefit from ISO 17025 include:
Product certification organizations and other conformity assessment bodies with the need to do testing, sampling or calibration.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Boost your reputation
ISO 17025 is a nationally, and internationally, recognized standard, giving your organization more credibility and demonstrating the reliability of testing, measurement, and calibration operations to customers, competitors, and stakeholders.
The ISO 17025 accreditation clearly demonstrates adherence to safety requirements and satisfies authoritative bodies as well as customers and clients.
ISO 17025 accreditation ensures continued competency and data quality. Your customers and stakeholders can be sure that the data you produce is accurate and reliable.
Increase in business
ISO 17025 gives you an advantage over your competition, as well as opening up new and lucrative tendering opportunities nationally and internationally.
Save time and money
Despite the initial cost of accreditation, the cost-saving benefits will quickly recoup this by removing the need to retest products, and the removal of requirements for supplier audits by independent parties.
The standard increases operational efficiency and productivity by defining staff roles and greater accountability, as well as procedures that facilitate a more reliable laboratory environment.
