Understanding and Implementing ISO 17025

Requirements, Strategies and Tool Kits for Laboratory Accreditation

Recorded

Order Button

ISO 17025 can be used by laboratories as a standard to develop and establish a Quality System in the laboratory and for the assessment by their clients or by third parties. The standard is also being used as a criterion for laboratory accreditation. While the FDA does not formally require ISO17025 accreditation regulated pharmaceutical laboratories are advised to study the standard for a number of reasons. FDA operates laboratories according to ISO17025 so inspectors are familiar with it. FDA is more and more referring to official global standards and last but not least: there is no such detailed document from the FDA on building up a quality system for analytical laboratories. However, introducing ISO17025 raises a number of questions.

Key Questions related to ISO 17025 are:

  • Which laboratories should comply with ISO17025?
  • We are ISO17025 accredited, is this enough for GMP and GLP inspections?
  • What are the management requirements of ISO17025?
  • What are technical requirements of ISO17025?
  • What is the benefit for pharmaceutical laboratories?
  • We are already certified for GLP, what do have to do for ISO17025?
  • How much does ISO17025 implementation and accreditation cost?
  • What is the most effective way to get ISO17025 accreditation?
  • How to select an organization for accreditation?

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:

  • Benefits of ISO 17025
  • Management requirements
  • Technical requirements
