Transition from ISO 17025:2005 to ISO 17025:2017

I am working as an Assistant Management representative in a Quality testing lab that is previously ISO17025:2005, now I need transition to 17025:2017, what mandatory documents I have to prepare and how to prepare a quality manual?

As ISO 17025 is a general guideline for a testing laboratory management system, the amount of documentation needed for your laboratory’s transition from ISO 17025:2005 to ISO 17025:2017 will depend on what you already have in place.

Referring to a mandatory document checklist will help you identify the gaps in your current system and identify the new or changed processes, procedures, and records that you will need to put in place. I suggest you also refer to your accreditation body for any specific requirements. 

Download the useful complimentary white paper (PDF) Checklist of mandatory documents required by ISO 17025:2017; available at https://info.advisera.com/17025academy/free-download/checklist-of-mandatory-documents-required-by-iso-17025

 

Please read the following articles for more information:

Note that accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 will be invalid after the 30 November this year (ILAC Resolution GA 20.15). Your laboratory will need to complete the transition and be assessed by your accreditation body before that date. The use of the ISO 17025:2017 toolkit, available at https://advisera.com/17025academy/iso-17025-documentation-toolkit/ could be a suitable tool to help meet the deadline.
