ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 certification

If a company has a lab, does laboratory testing and the lab is ISO 9001 certified, does that mean they are also ISO 17025 certified?

No, having ISO 9001 certification does not mean a laboratory has ISO 17025 accreditation. ISO 9001 certification is acknowledgement that the laboratory has successfully implemented a quality management system in accordance to the requirements of ISO 9001 standard. This is not the same as achieving ISO 17025 accreditation. ISO 17025 has requirements that include the ISO 9001 management components; but many other related to technical competency.
