  • Technical Manager - role, responsibilities and qualification

    We are working with a water laboratory on implementing a ISO 17025 Laboratory Management System. During our pre-assessment, *** highlighted that we needed to appoint a Technical Manager and highlighted that he needed to have specific qualification (including CPD, chartership etc.) So I am looking for the definition of technical manager under ISO 17025 or any other relevant Laboratory guidance/regulation, his role and responsibilities and competency required. Could you kindly advise?
  • Impartiality

    *** will be needing the standard for one operation only which is a mobile testing facility for pallets, for which they will charge their customers.  Commercially they want to demonstrate whether the material their customer is using (probably not bought from ***) is adequate and secondly to demonstrate that their own brand does meet the particular standard that they are testing against.

    To help me in pricing this, could you help with the following:

    1. How will what they are doing affect impartiality?
    2. As the testing will only be for one type of test, is it likely that all 58 forms are needed.

  • Can one person be lab director and quality manager at the same time?

    I want to let you know that I enjoyed last week’s webinar very much.  But I wanted to follow up on a question….We are currently a small organization and I’m currently wearing multiple hats including lab director and quality manager, among other things.  As we plan for ISO 7025 accreditation, is that something I will continue to do…can 1 person continue doing both or does the quality manager need to be a different person or report to a different group?
