ISO/IEC 17025 Accreditation
ISO/IEC 17025 is an International standard that specifies the requirements for Calibration and testing agencies.As a certified professional, the tests and calibration data will be more accurate and your organization shall become technically proficient in carrying out the activities of Testing and Calibration.
The opportunities of getting the job increases as the big and professional companies that look for the service industry that follow the proper system are more valued and chosen. Many organizations offer contracts to only to certified professional and laboratories.
Testing Labs vs Calibration Labs
For Testing Laboratories the scope must include the tests or types of tests performed and materials or products tested and, when necessary, which methods used. For Calibration Laboratories the scope must include the calibrations, encompassing the types of measurements performed, the Calibration and Measurement Capability (CMC) or equivalent.
Most testing research facility extents of accreditation do exclude proclamations or appraisals of estimation vulnerability; making it trying for clients to look at the ability and nature of testing labs. In this industry, the extent of accreditation ought to permit clients to unhesitatingly discover and choose a research center that will meet their necessities and give consolation. That is the reason working with a research center that is certify to ISO/IEC 17025 is perfect.
Below, you will find testing and calibration labs and their parameters. Please expand each tab for more information.
1. Testing Areas and Parameters
The following are examples of parameters within each testing area. Check those testing parameters for which your laboratory is seeking accreditation. If you do not see your parameter, check “other” and specify in the space provided. This document is used in conjunction with the draft scope of accreditation above.
