» ISO/IEC 17025: 2017 Seminar, Awareness for Transition

29 March, 2019

This seminar aims to provide details of the changes within the 2017 edition of ISO/IEC 17025. 

The seminar programme will include a review of all key changes, with a focus on; Risks and Opportunities and Management System Options. There will also be clarification on decision rules.

What are the benefits?

This seminar will be of benefit to those who are already familiar with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 and who are looking to understand the changes that have been made. For those that do not have this familiarity, then the more detailed ISO/IEC 17025: 2017 Awareness course offered by UKAS is recommended.

This seminar will enable delegates to gain an awareness of the revised structure of ISO/IEC 17025: 2017 and its function as a framework for demonstrating competence. It will help gain an understanding of the changes through the application of structure, resource and process, thus helping delegates consider what impact these changes will have on their own organisations.

Using the knowledge gained from UKAS’s involvement in the ISO CASCO Working Group that revised the standard, the presenters will explain the rationale behind the changes, and will consider how the new emphasis on risk management can be applied in a laboratory environment.
