    Hello, We intend to get accreditation for ISO17025 for our measurments. We deal with air quality measurement especially for source emissions i.e. stacks. I am not sure of nay PT schemes for such an area. Have you encountered such before? If so kindly assist.
  • Min number of employees necessary for lab to get 17025

    What is the min number of employees necessary for a lab to get 17025?
  • Numbering system

    I was hoping you could give advice on a numbering system for cross reference between the different documents ? Also do you have experience with 510K application at the FDA ? I have a local manufacturer who is busy the process

  • Internal audit on Sampling & Analysis

    I'm currently doing an internal audit on Sampling & Analysis and I noticed we don't have a true "procedure" for 17025:2017 requirement 7.4. We made a procedure for 7.3 and I am now realizing that 7.3 only needs to be a "plan". I was wondering if we should keep these two requirements separate or possibly roll them together into one procedure that covers both 7.3 and 7.4.  What do you think?
  • Key Technical Personnel (KTP)

    In NZ we have been told we need to go down the path as a KTP and not the usual Signatory status which means we need to come up with a new procedure and implement it in to the QM, do you have a procedure on Key Technical Personnel (KTP)
  • Best laboratory practices

    What best laboratory practices need to follow in the laboratory?
  • Validation and accreditation questions

    I don't know if you can help. We are looking for advice as we have two opposing trains of thought, both which can be valid when thought about. We want to accredit the analysis of Cu ores by acid digestion followed by ICP-OES analysis. There are samples with a Cu concentration of ~1% as well as samples with a Cu concentration of ~15%. The samples with the ‘low’ Cu concentration require crushing, whereas the samples with ‘high’ Cu concentrations samples do not. For sample digestion, the same acids will be used. However, after digestion, different dilutions are required to obtain the different Cu concentration ranges. Two Questions: 1)    must the process of sample size reduction for analysis be included in the validation process for accreditation? 2)    can you validate this as one method, even though different size reduction requirements and  dilutions are used prior to analysis?
  • Specific policy/procedure alongside our scope

    I have a query in relation to a specific policy/procedure which we have to draw up in relation to our scope. Since we are looking at this standard to be able to conduct RNG Tests in alignment with the following requirements: ***, would we be assisted in drawing up this process? I understand that this is something specific to each client so I do not expect this document to be included in the template.
  • Risk assessment of impartiality

    We just had external audit ob ISO 17025 and is just seekings some info on risk assessment of impartiality to be done with every inspection assignments . We are sprinkler inspection group inspection systems at client sites to the design standard followed and current performance, but only Certification was via *** although we are not a lab and testing in a lab. Therefore generic examples are the same but detail we are looking for other inspection services not laborotary base who are ISO 17025 certified and how they interpret impartiality compliance?
