Details of the event

Since 2017, calibration and testing laboratories have had to evolve their systems to adopt the new version of ISO/IEC 17025. Favouring the risk approach, emphasizing impartiality, it did not surprise those who had prepared for it or those who had already put in place processes compatible with these new requirements. For the others, on the other hand, it was necessary to carry out a fundamental work to adapt by responding as best as possible to the requirements, sometimes with difficulties in the very understanding of the requirements and their purpose. On the other hand, the metrological requirements applicable to laboratories have been clarified, which has also led some laboratories to strengthen their provisions.
In this evolving context, laboratories have been able to adapt. Today, the foundations are established. The time has come to take a step back to exploit the potential for improvement, in particular to optimize the resources needed to maintain accreditation in a sustainable manner.
