Familiarity with the standard and the importance of implementing ISO 17025
ISO 17025 is one of the most important standards for calibration of laboratories worldwide. Laboratories that are accredited to this International Standard have demonstrated that they are technically competent and capable of producing accurate information or accurate calibration.
The ISO 17025 standard includes a set of policies, processes, procedures and records. These documents set out a set of rules to make sure you choose a qualified technical laboratory that has a high quality on-site system.
Implementing ISO 17025 is one of the best proven ways to minimize risk. ISO 17025 enables organizations to provide testing and calibration services to organizations or companies whose customers require products, equipment or work to be tested or calibrated by a reputable laboratory. Ultimately, this reassures customers that they can rely on the validity of the results provided and the accuracy of the measurements.
Testing products and materials, even if done correctly, can be costly and time consuming. If not done properly, the cost and time involved will be tested, and not only will costs increase, but the manufacturer’s reputation will decline.
Choosing a reputable laboratory will minimize product defects. ISO 17025 certification helps save time and reduce risk.
