Overview of ISO/IEC 17025:2017

This first part introduces ISO/IEC 17025, explaining what it is, how it's used, and the purpose and benefits of an LMS.

Requirements of a Laboratory Management System

This module takes a step-by-step look at the relevant clauses in the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard in order to understand what they mean and what your company needs to do to comply with them.

Documented Information

Clear, well-written, and non-bureaucratic documentation is an important part of a Laboratory Management System.

A point worth noting here is that documents are used for storing and sharing information, while records are essentially hard copies of results (such as from an audit) or evidence of activities that have been performed. And while documents get revised from to time and are generally kept up-to-date, records are static and never revised.

Internal Auditing

This part introduces auditing techniques, including the fundamentals (audit methodologies), and the roles and responsibilities expected from a company's internal auditor.

  • Internal Auditing Basics
  • Audit Types
  • Roles and Responsibilities

Audit Records

Audit proceedings and findings must be documented according to ISO's specific requirements. The reports you compile (which show nonconformities and the corrective actions taken to address them) must be retained as they will be reviewed during the certification audit and subsequent surveillance audits. Points covered in this module include:

  • Audit Preparation
  • Conducting an Audit
  • Audit Reporting
  • Audit Completion and Follow-Up

Key Changes in ISO/IEC 17025:2017

ISO/IEC 17025's revision in 2017 was the first time the standard had been updated since 2005. Key changes included the addition of impartiality, risk management, the decision rule and process approach. This module takes a close look at theses and other important changes.

Measurement Uncertainty

This module examines measurement uncertainty (MU), an important part of laboratory testing and calibration, and a strict requirement of ISO/IEC 17025:2017.

Measurement Uncertainty: Practical Examples

Finally, the course uses practical examples to help elucidate what can sometimes be a difficult topic to grasp.

  • Staff who've been appointed members of their company's ISO/IEC 17025 internal audit team.
