ISO/IEC 17025 - Certified Lead Auditor

Certification Overview

ISO/IEC 17025 - Certified Lead Auditor

Exam Code: ISO17025-010

ISO/IEC 17025 has been developed and agreed as the international laboratory management system standard. 

This standard recognizes the importance of how competent individuals contribute to controlling measurement uncertainty through their interaction with measuring equipment.  ISO/IEC 17025 provides a framework of good management practices for laboratories performing testing and calibration, but conforming to the standard does not guarantee operational excellence.  The best laboratories in the world not only seek accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025, they also develop their process-based management systems to ensure continual process improvement.

Laboratories develop, implement and continually improve their process-based management systems to ensure they understand, quantify, control and continually improve their measuring processes.

Laboratories carry out testing, calibration or both. Testing relies upon a measurement system using calibrated gauges to determine characteristics in relation to a target.  Measurement uncertainty is quantified as the observed process variance attributed to the measuring system.  The measuring system is the combined effort of controls, resources, information and material used to assign values to measured characteristics.
