1 Day Course, Tuesday, April 16, 2019


With the revision to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and its emphasis on greater flexibility, we want to get you up to speed with what will be expected from laboratories that wish to be accredited to the new Standard. This one-day, interactive seminar will help you prepare for and understand the changes in ISO/IEC 17025:2017 compared to the 2005 Standard.  We will also discuss how assessments may cover the requirements.

This seminar is ideal as an orientation for staff, quality, managers, those seeking accreditation, and those who are currently accredited to the 2005 version of 17025. A complete crosswalk analysis that discusses differences in terminology, the risk-based shift, and option A/option B will be covered. A review of the requirements of the new Standard will be provided, and a case study approach will be employed to observe direct applications of the new requirements. The schedule allows for in depth discussions of topics of particular interest to the participants.

Intended Audience: Technical and Quality personnel from accredited laboratories, those seeking accreditation, or those investigating changes in the Standard.


Materials will be provided; however, attendees must bring their own copy of ISO/IEC 17025:2017.
