Judging conformity with Standards


ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is up and running. All test facilities are now being assessed for compliance with this version of the Standard. From our assessments and based upon feedback we receive, laboratories are generally satisfied with the new Standard, but we still get asked questions around the requirements that were introduced in the 2017 version. If you have any questions about interpreting particular requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2017 feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to assist as best we can (but we can't consult!). Questions that are likely to be of interest to other laboratories will be de-identified and posted on our FAQ page
