The basic requirements for a management system for testing and calibration laboratories are based on the
international standard ISO/IEC 17025. These are used for the assessment and accreditation of laboratories
worldwide by Accreditation Bodies in order to enhance the confidence of the market for the testing and
calibration results these laboratories issue.
The ISO/IEC 17025 was revised in 2017 in order to reflect the latest changes in market conditions and
technology as well as encompass the activities and new ways of working in laboratories today. It covers
technical changes, vocabulary, and developments in IT techniques and takes into consideration the latest
version of ISO 9001 on quality management. Laboratories already accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 will
need to transition their processes to the new version within a three-year period from the publication date
of the new standard.
This training course will give you advanced knowledge on the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 requirements, on
auditing and assessment techniques, on the new concept of risk management, on the good laboratory
practices and on validation/calculation of measurement of uncertainty methods. The course contents meet
the requirements of registration to the registries of STAREGISTER Inc., as an auditor or assessor of
Management Systems for Laboratories.
The training methodology includes lectures, practice, and teamwork. In this context, the participants are
asked to carry out group and individual exercises, Role-playing exercises, which aim to develop their
skills (time management, teamwork, cooperation) and evaluation tests. In the end, a satisfaction
the questionnaire is distributed to participants in order to evaluate the results of their training and the
achievement of its objectives.
