What is ISO 17025?
ISO 17025 is the internationally-recognised standard that specifies the competence and quality management system requirements for laboratories that provide testing and/or calibration services. Organisations with laboratories can achieve accreditation by UKAS against ISO 17025 through an assessment of their competence, impartiality and performance capability against the standard.
What are the benefits of ISO 17025?
Accreditation with UKAS to ISO 17025 enables organisations to provide testing and calibration services to organisations or companies whose customers require their products, equipment or work to be tested or calibrated by an accredited laboratory. It gives their customers confidence that they can rely on the validity of the results provided and the accuracy of the measurements undertaken.
