ISO/IEC General requirements for the competence of for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, and I would like. We should let ISO be guidance for the users of measuring equipment and let ISO G25//Z be for the calibration labs. ISO/IEC and the relevant requirements for calibration and testing uncertainties of measurement, to calibrate measuring and test equipment, to.

From the scope of ISO The client and the laboratory must agree upon the appropriate method of 10012. Metrological requirements are usually distinct from, and are not specified in, product requirements.

Root Cause Analysis Samples. Organization When a calibration ccalibration is part of an organization that performs other functions, both standards require that there be a separation between the additional activities of the organization and the calibration lab.

Use in practice of accuracy values.


The was written to include the requirements for both calibration and testing laboratories by demonstrating that the laboratory operates in a technically competent manner under the confines of a documented quality system producing valid results.

International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. For more information on traceability, refer to the NIST website: Opinions and Interpretations The allows for opinions and interpretations to be documented on a test report. Earlier this calibrtaion, the was adopted as a stand-alone American National Standard in the U.

Note 5 to entry: The requires traceability to SI units. Organizations have the responsibility to determine the level of controls needed and to specify the measurement management system requirements to be applied as part of their overall management system.


Difference Between ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 10012

Client or Customer Service Requests The Z does not require procedures for contract, request, or tender review. There is a great deal of richness in the ISO family of documents and it is a shame for users to not know about and take advantage of the calibbration range of possibilities.

It specifies the quality management requirements of a measurement management system that can be used by an organization performing measurements as part of the overall management system, and to ensure metrological requirements are met. Measurement processes should be considered as specific processes aiming to support the quality of the products produced by the organization. Undermanagement review is completed according to a predetermined schedule, which does not have to be annual.

No other follow-up activities are addressed.

Laboratories need to fully investigate these two standards and come to an understanding of their differences. Although manufacturers may designate time periods over which products should perform without degradation, the makes clear that it is the responsibility of the end-user organization to determine the appropriate 100122-1 interval under the requirements of its 10012- quality system.

The also requires procedures for preventive actions regarding the quality system or technical issues, whereas the Z does not address preventive actions. The also requires documentation of follow-up activities including corrective actions and their effectiveness. If the customer requires calibration services only, either standard may be applicable, though only the meets international requirements.

Laboratories meeting the requirements of the Z do not necessarily meet the requirements of the and ca,ibration accrediting bodies no longer state accreditation to Z on accreditation certificates.


The competence referred to in the title of the standard relates to the competence of the entire system — not just training of personnel.

Some of the sections of the Z are ambiguous and subject to interpretation. Legal Responsibility requires laboratories to be legally responsible entities. The requirements appear in normal typeface. Z was not written for testing laboratories.

For dated references, only the edition cited applies. The methods used for the measurement management system range from basic equipment verification to the application of statistical techniques in the measurement process control.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. The laboratory is required to document the basis of such opinions or interpretations and to calibratoin identify the remarks in the report.

Personnel training on the job shall be appropriately supervised. Cause analysis, implementation, monitoring, and additional audits are specifically discussed. The requires laboratories to establish and maintain a procedure for quality and technical records. One major point is the requirement that laboratories maintain records of original observations with sufficient information to establish an audit trail.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. To view the full content, you will need to purchase the standard by clicking on the “Buy” button.
