Revision of ISO 17025: What you need to know
by Tony Cunningham – Tuesday, 20 June 2017
Like so many other ISO standards, ISO 17025 is under revision to accommodate the new high-level structure published in ISO Directive 1 Annex SL and considerations from the revised ISO 9001:2015. Publication is expected late 2016 or early 2017.
ISO 17025 is a standard used by laboratories and states the requirements for competence to carry out tests and/or equipment calibration.
ISO 17025 is drafted for use by laboratories when developing and implementing a quality management system. Laboratories may use the standard to become accredited in order to provide confidence in their competence to customers and regulatory authorities.
