Why Should You Attend:
Many laboratories have successfully developed and implementing a functional quality management system that not only complies with the management and technical requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005 but also meets their needs. Some are still struggling to get accredited and even those already accredited still have issues as evidenced by the number of non-conformances cited during the subsequent biannual audits. Have the rules changed? What are the new requirements of ISO/IEC 17015:2017? How does the new standard impact laboratories that are already accredited and how do you ensure staff adherence and ongoing compliance to minimize corrective actions arising from accreditation audits?
