In terms of ISO 17025 requirements, education and training records and evidence of competence are essential. Typically the diploma without a transcript will be suitable. Laboratories should, however, have recruitment criteria and minimum education requirements documented. If necessary, to verify a specific educational achievement for a particular position, a transcript would be required. This could, for example, be a result (e.g.,>70%) for a specific course; or diploma. Furthermore, depending on the sector, employees may need their transcripts to join a professional body mandated by legislation, for example, a veterinary association or professional scientists association.
