ISO/IEC 17025

What is it?

Published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), ISO/IEC 17025 defines the general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.  This standardization was developed by lab experts across the globe, including the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), and is considered essential in proving that a testing facility is capable of producing valid, reliable results.  

Why is it important?

By obtaining an ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation, laboratories and testing facilities demonstrate that they operate consistently and produce accurate results.  In choosing a company to test child-resistant products, this accreditation promotes confidence that the services provided meet the structural, resource, process, and management system standards required to preform effectively.  Meeting ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation requirements also allows for cooperation between organizations, and ensures that test results and certificates can be accepted internationally without the need for additional testing.

How do Organizations get Accredited?

ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation is given to organizations that undergo comprehensive annual audits carried out by a third party accreditation body.  In order to be considered for ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation, the organization is required to have a documented quality management system (QMS) in place, which details the organization’s goals, policies, processes, information documentation, and resource management necessary to maintain and continually improve operations.  Prior to applying for accreditation, the organization must also participate in and provide an official report of an applicable proficiency test or inter-laboratory comparison to assess organization, performance, and evaluation of tests or measurements in accordance with predetermined conditions.
