"My company is ISO 9001 certified and have calibration that is done by third parties. The question is: is it really compulsory to pick company that are ISO 17025 certified due to our status which is ISO 9001 certified? Can the company get nonconformance for not selecting ISO 17025 certified? Please help.?”

Answer:
Formally, it is not compulsory to pick an organization ISO 17025 accredited to perform calibrations. In practice, organizations can get nonconformances for not selecting ISO 17025 accredited organizations, when those organizations don’t show evidence of traceability to international standards, when those organizations don’t show evidence of procedures followed and don’t show the limits of confidence of the results. So, to avoid all those possible problems, organizations choose an accredited external provider of calibration services.
