Webinar Title : Key Changes and Challenges in​ ISO/IEC 17025:2017

Date & Time : Wednesday March 28th at 11AM EST | Presenters : Chad Kymal & Dave Barber


The design of products and validation of manufacturing processes are often based on results of laboratories. Nothing is more important than correct and standardized lab results. In November 2017, ISO published a new revision to the ISO 17025 standard. It has been revised to integrate with ISO 9001:2015 and other newer standards including ISO 5189 Quality of Medical Laboratories and ISO/IEC 17021 audit requirements for certification bodies. To keep it consistent with newer standards, it now includes the “process approach.” This standard also includes an option to incorporate and integrate it with ISO 9001:2015. The International Standards Organization and International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ISO/ILAC) communique states – “Conformity with this standard also means that the laboratory generally operates a management system in accordance with the principles of ISO 9001.”

In ISO 17025:2017, all of the clause numbers of the standard have been revised from the previous version. Additionally, it has been updated with regards to many of the latest information technologies and incorporates the use of computer systems, electronic records and electronic results. Not only has the scope been revised, but it now includes the concept of “risk based thinking.”

There are many challenges to implementing ISO 17025, from the “process approach” to the incorporation of the latest information technologies. This webinar will highlight 18 of the new or changed requirements, discuss the transition deadlines, and the process needed to become ISO 17025:2017 certified.
