1. I have a question about Resource Requirements, 5.5 Metrological Traceability. As we are testing laboratory and not offering any calibration services does 5.5 need to stay in our Quality Manual or can I delete this?
2. Next question 17025 clause 8.1.3 Option B, our lab complies with option B so does that mean I can delete 7.2-7.9 from my Quality manual?
Section 2 Normative references
I have been asked to review the quality manual for accuracy before the owner reprints it. I never noticed this before, but under section 2 normative references, the owner of the laboratory listed reference such as textbooks and guides like: Bam, ISO/IEC guide to general terms in the definitions, and many other ISO guides like 7218, ISO guide 8402:1986. Do all of these references have to be put on a list of controlled external documents? Our lab has a list of internal and external controlled documents. These textbooks and guides listed in Section 2 of the QM are not of the list of external controlled documents. Isn't this a non-conformance?

Question about clause 4 of ISO17025:2017
I want to ask a question about the impartiality clause in the ISO17025:2017 standard.
I understand all the requirements about the impartiality, but as an auditor of the laboratory i want to ask you, How should i audit this clause of the standard? Which document or information should i be looking for to make a decision if the laboratory is compliant to this clause. The same goes with confidentiality.

Is the ISO 17025 toolkit cover the procedure of the mentioned scope?
17025 vs 13485
First of all, thanks for having this platform, very helpful!
My question is around how 17025 interacts with 13485. We have an ISO13485 QMS and we want to get accredited to ISO17025 for one of our labs, multiple in the future. Our core business is medical devices and 13485 is the heart of that, with a relative small part for calibration activities (internal use) where we want 17025 accreditation for.
Would it be best practice to integrate the ISO17025 requirements in the ISO13485 QMS or make a separate ISO17025 QMS for the labs?
Many thanks in advance.
ISO 17025 accredited labs and services
I'm new to calibration and am looking for more information for my company's quality department regarding ISO17025 accredited labs and the services they could offer us.
*** is a welding and fabrication facility, so we use all sorts of measuring and test equipment - from micrometers to CMMs.
Are there any sorts of items that don't necessarily need to be sent out on a regular basis?
