General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories

Status : Current, Project Underway   Published : June 2005



What is BS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005?

BS EN ISO/IEC 17025 looks at all the requirements testing and calibration laboratories and testing organizations have to meet to prove that they operate a quality system, are technically competent and can generate technically valid results. This standard applies to everything from test equipment to data sampling and sets out valid specifications to improve an organization’s quality assurance systems and as a result, their quality control. Key topics include testing and calibrations using standard, non-standard and laboratory-developed methods.

How does it work?

The requirements set out in BS EN ISO/IEC 17025 help laboratories with the development of their quality, administrative and technical operations management systems. Laboratory customers, regulatory authorities and accreditation bodies may also use this standard to confirm or recognise the technical competence of laboratories.

Who should buy it?

BS EN ISO/IEC 17025 applies to all organizations performing tests and/or calibrations. These include:

  • First-, second- and third-party laboratories
  • Laboratories where testing and/or calibration is part of inspection or product certification
  • Testing organizations
  • Regulatory authorities
  • Accreditation bodies
