ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is applicable to all organisations performing tests or calibrations, including first-, second- or third-party laboratories that are aiming to develop their management system and have their competence accredited. This ISO 17025 Internal Auditor course begins by explaining the requirements of the latest 2017 edition of ISO 17025 which defines the requirements to establish a quality management system and how to demonstrate the technical competence to produce technically valid test or calibration results. It then focuses on developing the auditing skills necessary to equip delegates to perform an internal audit of a laboratory management system, assess and report on its degree of compliance and determine its degree of effectiveness.
All laboratory or quality professionals who are involved in developing, establishing and maintaining an ISO 17025 Quality Management System. This may include laboratory managers, quality personnel, technical staff, consultants, and auditors of all types who want or need to learn better audit practices and an appreciation for the technical demands of ISO/IEC 17025.
