ISO 17025

Dear readers, here we are providing ISO 17025 PDF to all of you. This document has been developed with the objective of promoting confidence in the operation of laboratories. This document contains requirements for laboratories to enable them to demonstrate they operate competently, and are able to generate valid results. Laboratories that conform to this document will also operate generally in accordance with the principles of ISO 9001.

This document requires the laboratory to plan and implement actions to address risks and opportunities. Addressing risks and opportunities establishes a basis for increasing the management system’s effectiveness, achieving improved results, and preventing adverse effects. The laboratory decides which risks and opportunities need to be addressed.

The use of this document will facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies and assist in the exchange of information and experience, and in the harmonization of standards and procedures. The acceptance of results between countries is facilitated if laboratories conform to this document.

ISO 17025 PDF – Predecessors

Some national systems (e.g. UKAS M10 in the UK) were the forerunners of ISO/IEC 17025:1999 but could also be exceedingly prescriptive. ISO/IEC 17025 allows laboratories to carry out procedures in their own ways but requires the laboratory to justify using a particular method. In common with other ISO quality standards, ISO/IEC 17025 requires continual improvement.

Additionally, the laboratory will be expected to keep abreast of scientific and technological advances in relevant areas.  In common with other accreditation standards of the ISO 17000 series (and unlike most ISO standards for management systems), assessment of the laboratory is normally carried out by the national organization responsible for accreditation.

Laboratories are, therefore “accredited” under ISO/IEC 17025, rather than “certified” or “registered” by a third-party service as is the case with ISO 9000 quality standard. In short, accreditation differs from certification by adding the concept of a third party (Accreditation Body (AB)) attesting to technical competence within a laboratory in addition to its adherence and operation under a documented quality system, specific to a Scope of Accreditation.
