Your organization needs instruments that can ensure accuracy, precision, and reproducibility, all key tenets of scientific research quality. Keeping instruments calibrated for such a task becomes paramount. So what does it mean to have ISO 17025 accreditation, and how can Qualer help?
What is ISO/IEC 17025 Accreditation?
ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation refers to a cooperative agreement program set forth by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). ISO/IEC 17025 represents one of the most important calibration standards in testing laboratories. Any organization that performs tests or calibrations must adhere to the requirements for competence for carrying them out.
Why is ISO/IEC 17025 Accreditation Important?
The ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation serves as a mark of rigor and quality, and can be used as a standard for inspection and certification of products. ISO/IEC 17025 can also be used to confirm the competence of such laboratories. Bodies such as the FDA require that microbiology and chemical food analyses are performed in ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratories. The recognition of food safety and the need for such accreditation is just one example of its importance.
With ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation, your organization can be globally recognized and have an advantage with high standards for research assets as well as facilities themselves. Testing, calibration quality, and sampling may be used for competence requirements.
