ISO/IEC 17025 moves to final stage of revision

Over the years, ISO/IEC 17025, General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, has become the international reference for testing and calibration laboratories wanting to demonstrate their capacity to deliver trusted results. However, the laboratory environment has changed dramatically since the standard was last published, leading to the decision to revise the standard and integrate significant changes.

Developed jointly by ISO and IEC in the Committee on conformity assessment (CASCO), the new version of ISO/IEC 17025 will replace the 2005 version and is scheduled for publication at the end of this year.
