  • Changing calibration frequency

    I have a question regarding changing the calibration frequency of my field test instrument.

    In the process of obtaining ISO 17025 I came to realise the external supplier I used to calibrate our field test instruments were not accurate enough which in turn was making my uncertainty of measurement for temperature calibration too high.

    Due to this I have used another external supplier to carry out the field test instrument calibrations and the results have come back much better.  Due to this finding I need to build up a calibration history quickly to help with my measurement uncertainty calculations, so instead of having my calibrators calibrated every 3 months I now have changed it to monthly, and will continue to do this for the next 4 months after which time I will change the calibration frequency back to 3 monthly.

    How best do I document these findings and changes using your 17025 toolkit paperwork to show the auditors what I have done.  Your help would be appreciated.

  • What is the acceptable range of RH for a laboratory? 

    I would like to ask you a question. The ISO17025 standard has a clause that explains how important environmental conditions are for a lab. What is the acceptable range of RH for a laboratory?
  • Measurement uncertainty and lab validation

    If tests come with accepted tolerance ranges do you still do measurement uncertainty? Also if you use international standards which are validated already do you still need to validate the method in the lab?
  • Documents and clauses

    We attended the 12 steps webinar today and are thinking about buying your template package. After the seminar we discussed what we learned and decided to write up our  notes. We think these notes (and others we will create as we progress) should be part of the records but cannot figure out which clause they fit under. Any advise for us?

  • What is EQA Test in ISO17025

    Our lab is a petrol and diesel lab, and our lab says we need to do an EQA Test to get iso 17025. I did not understand the EQA Test.

  • Requlatory Requirements for a DNA testing lab

    Hi, I am in the process of starting a DNA testing lab in Canada, but I’m unsure of the regulatory requirements for offering my testing services to other businesses in Canada. Specifically, I am interested in offering microbial identification services to GMP pharmaceutical companies. I have worked for a pharmaceutical company in the regulatory side of the business (QA) and in QC (microbiology) and I am well versed in GMP requirements for the pharmaceutical industry. However, I have very little knowledge of what is required of outsourced labs that process samples that they receive from GMP pharmaceutical companies. I assume accreditation is mandatory for outsourced testing labs. Is ISO 17025 the relevant accreditation? Is it possible to speak to you or send follow up questions to better understand the regulatory framework for a DNA testing lab in Canada?

  • Eddy Current Testing or Electromagnetic Testing

    I'm an ET inspector -  does eddy current (Eddy Current Testing or Electromagnetic Testing ) machine flaw detection unit need a third party calibration sticker? I just want to make sure that as approved Testing Facility we need to comply in all particulars that refer to ISO/IEC17025
