What to look for when auditing this standard?
To audit the entire standard, go sequentially through the standard requirements using an audit checklist. Advisera has an ISO 17025 document template: Internal Audit Checklist available at https://advisera.com/17025academy/documentation/internal-audit-checklist/
If ISO 17025 requires a document or record, request an example of such a document and check if it meets the requirements. If not, the finding is raised as a nonconformance. For information on the mandatory requirements have a look at the Whitepaper Checklist of mandatory documents required by ISO 17025:2017 at https://info.advisera.com/17025academy/free-download/checklist-of-mandatory-documents-required-by-iso-17025
