General Requirements for the Competence of Testing & Calibration Labs
Our unique method can get you ready for ISO 17025 accreditation in as quick as 90 days with no compromises
ISO 17025 is based on ISO 9001 with a particular focus on testing and calibration bodies (of course).
Testing and calibration is a critical part of product development/product validation. Many of your customers need the assurance that their product meets the relevant standards and requirements before they report or launch. How can the customers make sure that the nominated laboratory provides accurate and repeatable results and quality outcomes? Well, all they need is to nominate an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory.
ISO 17025 was last updated in 2017 to align it with the 2015 version of ISO 9001 more closely.
In many cases in the USA, your customers are being forced by large conglomerates to work with competent ISO 17025 accredited laboratories only. Based on the previous experience with other standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 17025 accreditation will quickly become a ticket to work, and those without accreditation may start losing potential clients. If you have not been forced to comply, it may happen soon anyway. With the increasing number of laboratories having ISO 17025 accreditation, the importance of the standard is also elevating. As an outcome, ISO 17025 accreditation is becoming mandatory for testing and calibration laboratories.
