Steps in validating an instrument
Testing and calibration laboratories that comply with ISO/IEC 17025 will, therefore, also operate in accordance with ISO 9001.
Accreditation bodies that recognize the competence of testing and calibration laboratories use ISO/IEC 17025 as the basis for their accreditation.
Key points : This chapter describes how to ensure that tests and calibrations subcontracted to third parties are performed according to the same quality standards as if they were done in the subcontracting laboratory.
We make sure that ISO 17025 standard implementation does not remain just a documented activity, but prevails as a way of life for the organization, laying a foundation for Total Quality Management and a quality-conscious organizational culture.
We offer onsite consultation solutions and online consultation solutions for ISO 17025 accreditation.
ISO/IEC 17025 is divided into five clauses, two annexes, and one bibliography section: Management requirements pertain to the operation and effectiveness of the quality management system within the laboratory. This clause is divided into fifteen chapters, described below.
Individual paragraphs in this chapter describe how to ensure that all documents related to the management system are uniquely identified and created, approved, issued and changed, following the documented procedures.
Analytical testing laboratories seeking ISO/IEC 17025 will be affected in multiple areas.
