The UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017 now on sale

The standard, UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017, replacing that of 2005, is the most relevant of its kind regarding responsibilities in testing and calibration laboratories. The application of this international benchmark standard strengthens the trust in the competency of laboratories and in the validity of the results that they offer.

This document is applicable to all the companies that carry out laboratory activities, regardless of the amount of personnel they have, and facilitates cooperation between laboratories and other organisations, in addition to harmonising procedures.

The UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017, general requirements regarding the compatency of testing and calibration laboratories, specifies the general requirements regarding the responsibility, impartiality and operation of laboratories.

Planning and implementing actions to tackle risks and opportunities, increase the effectiveness of the management system, achieve better results and prevent negative impacts are fundamental aspects that this standard, UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017, helps to develop.
