ISO 17025 Certification

ISO 17025 Certification: ISO/IEC 17025 is an International Standard that specifies the general requirements for the
competence, impartiality and consistent operation of laboratories. This standard is applicable to all  organizations performing laboratory activities.

ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is used by Laboratory customers, regulatory authorities, organizations and schemes using peer-assessment, accreditation bodies, and others in confirming or recognizing the competence of  laboratories. Labs use ISO 17025 to implement a quality system aimed at improving their ability to  consistently produce valid results.

In most countries, ISO/IEC 17025 is the standard for which most labs must hold accreditation in order to be deemed technically competent. In many cases, suppliers and regulatory authorities will not accept test  or calibration results from a lab that is not accredited.

Originally known as ISO/IEC Guide 25, ISO/IEC 17025 was initially issued by the International Organization for Standardization in 1999. There are many similarities between ISO 9000 standard and 17025 Standard, but ISO/IEC 17025 is more specific in requirements for competence and applies directly to those organizations that produce testing and calibration results and is based on somewhat more technical principles.
