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. The module also addresses the risk-based approach that forms a key component of ISO/IEC 17025:2017.

ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Requirements

Next, the course takes a step-by-step look at the relevant clauses in the ISO/IEC 17025 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 an ISO/IEC 17025 Laboratory Management System.

While documents are used for storing and sharing information, 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.

Steps for Implementation & Certification

The final part explains how organizations can implement an ISO/IEC 17025 LMS, ensure it complies with the standard's requirements, and achieve certification.
