What is ISO 17025 Certification for Laboratory Management System?

The ISO/IEC 17025 is a globally used laboratory accreditation standard that outlines requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. ISO 17025 CERTIFICATION is a procedure by which an authoritative body gives formal recognition of technical competence for specific tests/measurements based on third party assessment based on ISO 17025:2005 standard guidelines. ISO/IEC 17025 standard is an evolution of the former ISO guide 25 and latest version is ISO/IEC 17025:2005.

The title of this standard is "ISO/IEC 17025: General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories". This standard is internationally recognized basic document for accreditation of laboratories

How Laboratories Get ISO 17025 Accreditation?

The ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation Committee) and APLAC (Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation Committee) are engaged upon development and updating of guidelines connected with ISO 17025 Accreditation activities. The Recognized ISO 17025 Accreditation body is a member of and a signatory to ILAC as well as APLAC Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRA). The list of MRA is available from the ILAC/APLAC web sites. Such international arrangements facilitate acceptance of test/ calibration results between countries to which MRA partners represent.

On accreditation of laboratory by such recognized body the test report of laboratory gets global acceptance due to such mutual recognition. The laboratory select appropriate accreditation body for ISO/IEC 17025 either recognized MRA in the country or any globally recognized body. And send their application with manual and list of scope parameters. The ISO-IEC 17025 accreditation body will review the manual and fix up the accreditation on site audit dates. They witness the test or measurements as well as review the records and after successful completion of audit the laboratory is getting such accreditation
