Laboratory Management & Internal Audit as per ISO / IEC 17025:2017


CII Institute of Quality is pleased to announce Four-day training programme on Laboratory Management & Internal Audit as per ISO / IEC 17025:2017 

Background :

Indian Industry has come of age in practicing quality since the quality movement started in 1987. In order to achieve more business success in open market Indian Industry is following Total Quality Management (TQM) approach.

For adopting TQM, the manufacturing sector has to establish an efficient and effective control in measurement system that includes Laboratory Measurement System. This results in production of products with lesser and lesser rejection and more acceptances to customers.

In 2017, ISO published a revision to ISO/IEC 17025 (previously published in 2005) since then, market conditions and technology have changed. The new version covers technical changes, vocabulary and developments in IT techniques. It also takes into consideration the latest version of ISO 9001.

As a consequence, it has been agreed that laboratories that demonstrate conformity through third-party accreditation will need to transition their processes to the new version within a defined timeframe. ILAC, in consultation with ISO, agreed that a three-year period from the date of publication shall be allowed for this transition.
