Developing a Quality Management System (QMS) as a prerequisite for getting accredited is relatively easy. Maintaining the QMS to retain your accreditation status is the real challenge and a measure of the robustness your System.

Many laboratories struggle with developing 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. Once accreditation has been achieved many laboratories have difficulty maintaining the QMS as evidenced by the number of non-conformances cited during the subsequent biannual audits.

– Why do you want to become accredited?

– Where do you start?
