Overview of ISO/IEC 17025:2005

For a successful implementation

This course is based on the edition of ISO/IEC 17025:2005, General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.


For many years, various accreditation bodies (such as SCC, NIST, A2LA) have accredited calibration and testing laboratories to the requirements of, initially, ISO/IEC Guide 25, then ISO/IEC 17025. With the edition of the ISO 9000:2000 series of standards and the publication of ISO/IEC 17025:2005, laboratories may have the following questions:

  • What do ISO 9001:2000 and ISO/IEC 17025:2005 have in common?
  • Does registration complement accreditation? 
  • Is registration to ISO 9001:2000 necessary?

    This course presents the concepts that form the basis of a quality management system (QMS), and how they are applied in a laboratory environment with ISO/IEC 17025. Among others, the following are covered:
  • Concepts related to quality in a lab 
  • The Process Approach and ISO/IEC 17025 
  • Documenting the QMS
  • Management system requirements 
  • Technical requirements 
  • Recommendations for implementation 
  • ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation process.

    In addition to the practical approach of the course, you will benefit from exchanges with your peers.

A one day course that will assist you in preparing your quality system to meet the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 and, in understanding how this standard applies to calibration and testing laboratories.
