First let us understand what is the ISO/IEC 17025:2017
ISO is the International Organization for standards which is a worldwide federation of national standard bodies. IEC on the other hand is the International Electrotechnical Commission. It has multiple accreditations one of which is the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 which specifies the general requirements for the competence, impartiality, and consistent operation of laboratories. It is applicable to all organisation performing any laboratory functions, regardless of their personnel sizes. This certification is vital in recognising the competence of any laboratory as it is the international reference for laboratories carrying out calibration and testing activities around the world. An example is testing a cereal sample (the item of interest), to see if the amount of pesticides it contains meets the legislated limits (the conformity). Calibration laboratories, on the other hand, compare a measurement instrument of unknown accuracy to one of known accuracy. For example, calibration can be used to ensure that the scale at the airport (the unknown) will accurately weigh your luggage by comparing the readings across against certified mass pieces (the known).
How Does The ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Look Like?
The certification structure is divided into five main sections that contain the requirement for laboratory accreditation
