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.

And detailed records must be maintained through the entire process.

The work of calibfation International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical committees. Any laboratories seeking accreditation will be assessed to A list of the minimum elements of the review is outlined.


Personnel The Z requires sufficient laboratory personnel with the necessary technical and educational requirements for their assigned duties. Department of Defense requirements. No other follow-up activities are addressed. The philosophy of the is focused on providing competent measurement services with results that are traceable to appropriate standards.

Difference Between ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 10012

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. General principles and definitions. While the scope of both documents includes language that can perhaps cause confusion, what follows is the salient text from both that illuminates the difference between the two. ISO is a guidance document and not intended for certification. Organizations have the responsibility to determine the calibrahion of controls needed and to specify the measurement management system requirements to be applied as part of their overall management system.


If the customer requires calibration services only, either standard may be applicable, though only the meets international requirements.


Confidentiality of Customer Information Both standards require documented policies and procedures to ensure the confidentiality of customer information. 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. The goal of calibration interval analysis is to reduce out-of-tolerance conditions calibratjon an acceptable level based on the quality requirements of the organization.

The Z does not directly address opinions and interpretations. The excludes this list but outlines corrective action procedures. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

In summary, ISO is a guidance document that addresses one element namely management of a measurement system of a quality management system. That reaffirmation continues Z for five more years. Probability and general statistical terms. It defines requirements relevant to the measurement management system in language that may illustrate interrelations to other parts of an overall quality management system. In general, the is more prescriptive and has clarified and added to the ISO Guide 25 requirements upon which the Z Part I is based.

General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratoriesand Aclibration would like guidance on usage and application of these standards.

Managing the Measurement SystemQuality Progress. This traceability is established through the laboratory standards in an unbroken chain of calibrations through appropriate primary standards and may be made through national measurement standards. Personnel training on the job shall be appropriately supervised. This part of the standard is not accessible to you. If international customers have such requirements, they are not covered by thebut rather by ISO From the scope of ISO Correctly applied measurement, wherever and however it occurs, is an essential element of a successful business QMS.


Training of personnel shall be documented and kept up-to-date. Technical Records The goal of the record system identified in the Z is to retain sufficient information to repeat a calibration under identical conditions. The methods used for the measurement management system range from basic equipment verification to the application of statistical techniques in the measurement process control. Except by agreement, this International Standard is not intended to add to, subtract from, or replace any requirements of other standards.

ISO – Wikipedia

The details the minimum elements of job descriptions and specifies that the quality manual contain the job descriptions for the technical manager and quality manager for the lab. Both internal and externally generated documentation such as regulations, standards, procedures, test or calibrations instructions, calbration, software procedures, equipment specifications, and manuals are included.

Measurement Traceability The Z requires traceability of measurements to national standards, international standards, or intrinsic standards that have been compared to other intrinsic standards, particularly those of national labs.

Accrediting bodies are assessing ways to accommodate labs needing compliance to both standards. Relevant training records of calibration personnel shall be available to the laboratory.

Metrological confirmation is not achieved until and unless the fitness of the measuring equipment for the intended use has been demonstrated and documented.

The Z has been calibrattion American National Standard since Skip to content Q: Calibration and Testing Services.
