This new standard aligns and harmonizes ISO/IEC 17025:1999 with ISO 9001:2008. The
training incorporates and explains the amendments to clauses where ISO determined
that such changes were necessary. The technical requirements for laboratories who
provide testing and calibration services are enhanced by the use of management systems
that incorporate the requirements of ISO 9001:2008.
The acceptance of testing and calibration results between countries and industries
should be facilitated if laboratories want to comply with this International Standard.
The use of this standard will facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other
bodies and assist in the exchange of information and experience, standards and procedures.
Who Should Attend
Laboratory managers, responsible company/corporate management, lab personnel, persons
responsible for documenting, implementing, maintaining or auditing the laboratory
systems; internal, 2nd or 3rd party auditors.
General knowledge of functional management, quality systems, and laboratory practices.
