What Is ISO 17025 Certification
The ISO 17025 was first developed in 1999 by ISO and IEC, which stand for International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission. This globally recognized and the single most important standard dedicated for calibration and testing laboratories all across the world. Laboratories which hold this certification ensure that they are technically competent and loaded with the incredible power to produce precise and accurate test/calibration data.
This certification is dedicated to the quality management system requirements, which are relevant in respect of calibration services, technical competence, and testing. In simple words, this certification specifies the general requirement for the competence in order to carry out the accurate test and/or calibration data.
This standard revolves around calibration and testing following standard methods, laboratory-developed and non-standard methods. It is the amalgamation of five elements; Scope, Normative References, Management Requirements, Terms and Definitions and Technical Requirements. It determines the correctness and reliability of the tests and calibrates which are performed in the laboratory. It ensures that it will not be harmful to others.
