On-line Audio Seminar 210

Effective Gap Analysis for ISO 17025

With Practical Tools for Easy Implementation


Order Button

ISO 17025 is  the recognized global standard for laboratory accreditation. It is required by many private and public organizations as a prerequisite for business contracts and such accreditation status significantly improves the image of the laboratory and its employees. Getting ISO 17025 accreditation is easier  than most people think. The reason is that many of the requirements are already implemented in one or the other way bit not fully documented. Therefore a gap analysis is the first and most important step in the whole process. The objective is to find out what is it that needs to be done in addition to what is already available. However many laboratory managers  don't know how to conduct a gap and even less they have the right tools for efficient implementation.    

Key Questions related to ISO 17025 gap analysis are:

  • We believe we have quite good analytical working practices, is this enough?
  • How to find the real ISO 17025 requirements, the text in the standard is too high level?
  • What are the steps for an effective gap analysis?
  • How long does a gap analysis take?
  • What is the benefit of ISO 17025 for pharmaceutical laboratories?
  • We are already certified for ISO 9000, what do have to do for ISO17025?
  • We are already certified for GLP, what do have to do for ISO17025?
  • Who should do the gap analysis?
  • Are there tools available for an efficient gap analysis?
  • How much does ISO17025 implementation and accreditation cost?
  • What is the most effective way to get ISO17025 accreditation?
  • What is most likely to go wrong?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • Overview and benefits of ISO 17025
  • Definition and scope of gap analysis
  • Key reasons for a gap analyis
  • Difference to inspections and accreditation assessment
  • Introduction to the gap analysis process
  • Preparation of laboratory staff for the gap analysis
  • The right format of the gap analysis questionnaire
  • Filling the questionnaire with the right content: copying the 17025 text is not enough!
  • Documenting the gaps and required actions for each defined requirement.
  • Converting your current work practices to ISO 17025 compliance with minimal effort
  • Real cost estimates for implementing ISO 17025
  • Avoiding frequent pitfalls
