How to Efficiently Get ISO 17025 Accreditation

Step-by-step from the idea to cost-effective implementation


Order Button

Getting ISO 17025 accreditation expands a laboratory's business opportunities but there are also costs involved. Many organizations only contract analyses to accredited laboratories. However, because of the standard's requirements ISO 17025 accreditation needs to be thoroughly budgeted, planned, designed and implemented. This holds for planning of organizational and management structure, for facilities and equipment, and for documented staff training. 

Key Questions related to building an ISO 17025 laboratory are:

  • Who should get accreditation?
  • We already have GLP, how to upgrade to ISO 17025?
  • We already are GMP certified, how to upgrade to GLP?
  • We are already ISO 9001 certified, can we leverage SOPs and other documents?
  • How long will it take from the 'go' decision until we get accreditation status?
  • How much does it cost?
  • What are the deliverables?
  • Our laboratory only has five employees, is this enough for ISO 17025
  • What are the management and organizational requirements?
  • Which type of documents should be developed?
  • Do we need any additional people with different qualifications?

How does the audio seminar help:

A good understanding of ISO 17025 requirements together with a good strategy for planning, design and implementation not only can keep the costs under control but provides assurance that the lab will pass initial and on-going assessments. Answers to the questions above 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, checklists, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • Key ISO 17025 Requirements
  • Main differences to ISO 9001, GLP and GMP
  • Main difference to CLIA and to ISO 15189 for medical laboratories
  • Benefits of ISO 17025 accreditation
  • The importance of the scope of the accreditation
  • Costs for implementation: personnel, equipment, documentation
  • Estimating return of investment
