Overview of ISO/IEC 17025:2017
This first part introduces the ISO/IEC 17025 standards, explaining what it is, how it's used, and the purpose and benefits of a LMS.
Requirements of a Laboratory Management System
This module takes a step-by-step look at the relevant clauses in ISO/IEC 17025:2017 in order to understand what they mean and what your organization needs to do to comply with them.
ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Documented Information
Clear, well-written, and non-bureaucratic documentation is an important part of a 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.
Summary of 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.
Decision rules describe how measurement uncertainty is accounted for when stating conformity with a specified requirement. Along with measurement uncertainty, decision rules form a core part of the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard.
Risk and Opportunity
ISO/IEC 17025:2017 emphasizes risk-based thinking, preventive action, and process design. This module examines how risk-based strategies are employed as a means to prevent or minimize risk and enhance opportunity.
Management Review for an LMS
In the context of ISO/IEC 17025, a management review is a strategic opportunity for top management to evaluate the organization's Laboratory Management System and assess the extent to which it meets its functions and goals.
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
Next, the course uses practical examples to help elucidate what can sometimes be a difficult topic to grasp.
Steps for Implementation & Certification
The final part examines the steps necessary to implement an ISO/IEC 17025 LMS and achieve certification.
