Accreditation Advisory for ISO 17025

Advisory Services for Laboratory Accreditation - ISO/IEC 17025:2017  

ISO/ IEC 17025:2017 defines the general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories in order to build confidence in the laboratory activities. NABL Certification and Laboratory accreditation is a procedure through which an authoritative body provides formal recognition of technical competence for specific tests/ measurements, based on third-party assessment based on ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard.

The ISO/IEC 17025 standard is developed as per the ISO Guide 25. ISO 17025 Accreditation is managed by International Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation Committee (ILAC) and Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation Committee (APLAC) Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRA). ILAC and APLAC are involved in development and updating of guidelines as regards to the accreditation activities. Owing to such international arrangements, acceptance of test/ calibration results is ensured between countries which are represented by MRA partners.

Upon accreditation of laboratory by such recognized body, the test/ calibration report of laboratory gets global acceptance. The ISO 17025:2017 standard for laboratory accreditation primarily focusses on independent testing and calibration laboratories as well as laboratories of company/ other laboratory.

The ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Certification is an accreditation, which is granted to a laboratory by an ILAC/APLAC approved accreditation body, which is authorized by ILAC or APLC to provide accreditation under the ISO/IEC 17025:2017. The ISO 17025 accreditation certificate is issued for the period of two years upon successful completion of pre-assessment and registration (final) assessment. The validity of the certificate of ISO 17025 system is of 2 years from the date of issue. ISO 17025 certification is offered in India by MRA like NABL. Globally this certification is offered by  
Southern African Development Community Accreditation Service (SADCAS)  
, United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) , American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB), International Accreditation Service (IAS) , United Accreditation Foundation (UAF), IOAS Inc.,  Tunisian Accreditation Council , National Accreditation Center of Iran (NACI), Gulf Cooperation Council Accreditation Center  (GAC), South African National Accreditation System (SANAS)
