Laboratory Auditing & ISO 17025:2005 Internal Auditor Book Course

Course Duration

5 Days

Course Description

This new standard aligns and harmonizes ISO/IEC 17025 with ISO 9001. The training incorporates and explains the amendments to clauses where ISO determined that such changes were necessary. The technical requirements for laboratories who provide testing and calibration services are enhanced by the use of management systems that incorporate the requirements of ISO 9001.

The acceptance of testing and calibration results between countries and industries should be facilitated if laboratories will comply with this International Standard. The use of this standard will also facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies and assist in the exchange of information and experience, standards and procedures. The introduction of the Process Approach to Management Systems and a new auditing standard which allows efficient and effective auditing of these systems can be used by internal and external auditors to meet the requirements of laboratory and quality systems. Our 5-Day seminar provides insight to the quality, lab and auditing facets with a fast paced, interactive approach.
