ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Training Series

ISO/IEC 17025:2005 has been revised to align the ISO 17025:1999 version with ISO 9001:2008. Thus, ISO harmonized lab system accreditation by recognizing the ISO 9001:2008 standard as the basis for sound management of lab systems. This is now found in Clause 4 of ISO/IEC 17025. The technical part, in Clause 5 contains all of the requirements that testing and calibration labs have to meet if the wish to demonstrate that they operate a management system, are technically competent and are able to generate technically valid results. ISO/IEC 17025:1999 replaced ISO/IEC Guide 25:1990 & EN 45001:1989 as the contemporary standard to be adhered to by all testing & calibration laboratories. It integrated the requirements of ISO 9001 & 9002(1994) & embodied the extensive experience gained over a time span of 10 years of lab systems implementation.

ISO/IEC 17025 promotes cooperation between laboratories and other bodies to assist in the exchange of information & experience and the harmonization of standards & procedural goals. As a rule, within an organization any technology should be subjected to calibration & testing and measured by a sampling scheme that results in data collection and analysis. It is then possible to gauge the effect on the activities or goods produced and plan appropriately for improvement. Essentially, this is the goal of all standards introduced in the business environment.
