Introduction:

Many countries worldwide use a process called Laboratory Accreditation as a means of determining technical competence. The Laboratory accreditation uses criteria and procedures specifically designed to determine its technical competence. Specialized technical experts carry out a thorough evaluation of all factors that may affect the results of tests or calibrations.



The acceptance of testing and calibration results between countries and industries should be facilitated if laboratories want to comply with this International Standard. The use of this standard will facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies and assist in the exchange of information and experience, standards and procedures.



The criteria are based on the internationally recognized Standard (ISO / IEC 17025) for testing or calibration laboratories which are used for evaluating laboratories worldwide. Laboratory accreditation bodies use this Standard specifically to assess factors relevant to a laboratory’s ability to produce precise, accurate test and calibration data; the training incorporates and explains the amendments to clauses where ISO determined that such changes were necessary

Objectives:

Upon the completion of this course, Trainees will be able to acquire:

 Technical competence of personnel

 Reliability and appropriateness of test methods

 Traceability of measurements and calibrations on national standards

 Suitability, calibration and maintenance of test equipment

 Testing environment

 Sampling, handling and transportation of test items

 Requirements for a competent and compliant calibration/test laboratory

 Understand basics for implementing a sound laboratory system from quality, calibration, and test perspectives

 Recall the differences between registration, certification and accreditation;

 ISO/IEC 17025:2005 through key word recognition;

 Identification of the documents and records required by ISO/IEC 17025:2005;
