ISO/IEC 17025 is the international standard for the general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories and has been updated and revised in 2017.
The new version was released on November 19, 2017.
Many laboratories have successfully developed and implemented a functional quality management system that not only complies with the management and technical requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005 but also meets their needs. Some are still struggling to get accredited and even those already accredited still have issues, as evidenced by the number of non-conformances cited during the subsequent biannual audits.
Now there is a new challenge.
This webinar will discuss the changes in the standard and how to ensure that your QMS meets all of the new ISO/IEC 17025 : 2017 requirements.
