Around the globe, organizations, and laboratories that perform testing, calibration and/or sampling activities deal with the ever-increasing challenge of being able to demonstrate confidence in their operations, prove they operate in a competent and impartial way, and are able to provide valid results.
ISO/IEC 17025 allows organizations and laboratories to show that they operate competently and can generate valid results, therefore promoting confidence in their work both nationally and internationally. Furthermore, the regulation helps ease collaboration between laboratories and other bodies by creating wider acceptance of results between countries. This means that certificates and test reports can be accepted amongst various countries without having the need for further testing, reducing bureaucracy, saving time and reducing costs.
