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 a Laboratory Management System.
ISO 17025:2017 Lab Accreditation Process
This part examines the steps necessary to implement an ISO/IEC 17025 LMS and achieve certification (also known as accreditation).
Requirements of a Laboratory Management System (LMS)
This part 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.
Clear, well-written, and non-bureaucratic documentation is an important part of an LMS.
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.
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.
This part introduces auditing techniques, including the fundamentals (audit methodologies), and the roles and responsibilities expected from a company's internal auditor.
Audit Terms and Definitions, and Roles and Responsibilities
Terms and definitions are introduced and explained, as well as a discussion of the roles and responsibilities expected from a company's internal auditor.
Performing an Audit
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:
Nonconformities and Corrective Action
Nonconformities (also known as non-conformities or non-conformances) are the "gaps" in your LMS that don't fully comply with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 requirements. Corrective actions are actions taken to address these gaps. Keeping a record of all such nonconformities and corrective actions is a crucial part of auditing.
