Changes in Upgraded Version of ISO 17025:2017

  • A new chapter on risk-based thinking has been added. The employment of this information has enabled some reduction of the standard’s prescriptive guidelines and resulted in their replacement by performance-based guidelines. 
  • Greater flexibility in the guidelines for processes, procedures, documented information, and organizational responsibilities. 
  • Terminology has been updated, For example
    • Laboratory has been added, which replaces the “certification body”.
    • The term “outsourcing” is replaced by “external provision”
  • The standard now recognizes and incorporates the use of computer systems, electronic records, and the production of electronic results and reports through Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). 
  • The scope has been revised to cover all laboratory activities. This includes testing, calibration, and the sampling associated with subsequent calibration and testing. 
  • The process approach now matches that of newer standards such as ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 15189 (quality of medical laboratories) and ISO/IEC 17021-1 (requirements for audit and certification bodies).
