The three main changes in the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 to keep in mind are more options, the involvement of risk, and updates in current technology.
Back in November 2017, the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 general requirements for the competence of calibration and testing were published. QSE Academy reminds that all accredited laboratories have to shift to the new standard by late 2020, three years after the final version’s release.
It includes major differences with the numbering, phrasing, and formatting of sections from the 17025:2012.
QSE Academy has created its own cross-referencing table to help organizations find specific differences between the two versions.
The standard’s new structure is no longer based on the two main chapters– five for Technical Requirements and two for Management Requirements.
To integrate with the rest, QSE Academy has found that the changes are more process-oriented and follow the CASCO guidelines for conformity assessment standards.
It includes Structure Requirements, Resource Requirements, Process Requirements, and Management System Requirements.
The standard includes two Annexes that were not introduced in the previous version:
• Informative Annex A, related to metrological traceability
• Informative Annex B, related to the different options of the laboratory management system.
ISO/IEC 17025:2017 defines the word ‘impartiality’ as the ‘presence of objectivity’. Meanwhile, ‘objectivity’ means that ‘conflicts of interest do not exist, or are resolved so as not to adversely influence subsequent activities of the laboratory’.
Any pressure put on the people involved cannot influence laboratory activities. Likewise, results from testing or calibration laboratories cannot have the appearance of being altered by any relationships the laboratory or the people involved in laboratory activities may have with the client.
QSE Academy recommends to draft a document in which, depending on the needs, shall include the following steps:
• Laboratories must create a structure to determine, analyze, and handle potential impartiality risks, and minimize pressures to secure impartiality.
• Laboratories must show how to mitigate or eliminate risks. Risks may come from activities and the relationship of laboratory personnel.
• Laboratories must design and implement a pertinent action plan.
• Laboratories must commit to integrity through the signature of a statement by the senior management.
This must be reviewed at the management review and be revised if necessary.
The laboratory holds the responsibility for managing all information acquired during laboratory activities, in accordance with legally enforceable commitments.
Customers should be notified in writing if the laboratory expresses the desire to make information about an assignment available to the public. A laboratory’s personnel, external personnel, and providers should also agree and sign a confidentiality declaration.
The reformation of the structural requirements includes the following significant changes:
• The terms ‘quality manager’ and ‘technical manager’ are not mentioned, yet the functions remain in the standard. In addition, it is no longer imperative for key positions to have deputies.
• The laboratory is required to write a range of activities, but it does not include permanently subcontracted activities.
Following the new ISO 9001:2015, sufficient communication processes about the management system’s effectiveness is also required.
There are no substantial changes, but the most notable include:
• Taking up supervision before authorization and monitoring after authorization of the personnel.
• Removing the assessment of the training’s efficiency.
• Eliminating the documentation of job descriptions, but it is necessary to outline competency requirements for each function, including managerial functions and those that have an effect on the laboratory results.
Blind samples, inter/intra-laboratory comparisons, inter-comparison samples, reference standards, and exams are the most frequently used monitoring or supervision methods for personnel.
Facilities and Environment Conditions have no substantial changes. However, a new standard compels that environmental and facilities related requirements should be fulfilled when tests are conducted in facilities outside its permanent control.
QSE Academy has discovered that equipment now encompasses standards, software, reagents, and reference materials. Equipment must be calibrated if its accuracy can impact the results’ validity and if calibration is needed to identify metrological traceability.
Take note that reference to ISO 17034 has been added to highlight the competence of RM producers.
A new Informative Annex on metrological traceability has been created while most of the notes were erased. In Annex A, possibilities have been added on how to determine and show traceability:
• Through the use of an NMI.
• Accredited calibration laboratory.
If possible, it is easier and cost-efficient for laboratories to use NMIs or accredited calibration laboratories. Otherwise, a laboratory can opt to assess its competence based on ISO/IEC 17025.
This new item is comprised of the previous concept of subcontracting, meaning subcontracting and purchasing are now collated in one clause.
The laboratory should have a system to select, assess, monitor, and reassess external providers. It shall also ensure that all purchased products and services meet the requirements.
Lastly, the laboratory shall clearly state to the provider what is to be bought, the acceptance criteria, the needed personnel competence, and the activities intended to be executed in the provider’s facilities.
The laboratory should have a procedure for the reviews, requests, tenders, and contracts. The documentation of this procedure is needed as well. It includes:
• Advising the customer when the method requested by the customer is out of date or inappropriate.
• Clearly defining a statement of conformity when requested by the customer.
• Settle any differences between the contract and the tender or request before starting work.
• Inform the customer of deviations from the contract.
• Repeat contract review if amended after work and communicate to all impacted personnel.
• Coordinate with customers or their representatives in clearing up a request and in checking the laboratory’s performance associated with the work performed.
• Keep records of reviews.
The laboratory shall use appropriate procedures and methods for all activities. Updated procedures, methods, and supporting documents should be retained and made available to personnel.
Furthermore, the laboratory shall use the latest version of methods unless not possible to do so. It must also choose a suitable procedure when the customer wasn’t able to specify.
The laboratory must verify methods before introducing them to make sure they can attain the required performance. Other than having an action plan for method development, the laboratory must validate laboratory-developed methods, standard methods, and non–standard methods used outside their intended scope.
In the case of deviation from methods, the customer must document, technically justify, authorize, and accept it. As a general rule, the laboratory must preserve records of validation.
The laboratory shall have a sampling method and sampling plan when it executes sampling of products, materials, or substances, for subsequent calibration or testing.
To ensure the legitimacy of subsequent calibration or testing, the sampling method shall address the aspects to be controlled. Just like the other parts, the laboratory must retain records.
The laboratory shall have a procedure for the handling, receipt, retention, storage, protection, transportation, disposal, and return of calibration items or tests, including all provisions necessary to protect the integrity of the calibration item or test and to protect the interests of the customer and the laboratory.
Similarly, there should be precautions to avoid contamination, deterioration, loss, and damage to the item during handling, storing, waiting, transporting, and preparing for calibration or testing. Handling instructions provided with the item shall be followed.
The laboratory must have a system for the unambiguous identification of calibration items or tests. The identification shall be kept while the item is under the laboratory’s responsibility. The laboratory must maintain records of the calibrated item or tests.
This is about adequate information and tracking amendment to original observations or previous versions.
To further explain, the laboratory shall assure that technical records for laboratory activities include sufficient results and reports. It must cover information to facilitate and identify factors affecting the measurement result and its associated measurement uncertainty, and enable the repetition of the laboratory activity under conditions as close as possible to the original.
The technical records shall enclose the date and the identity of personnel responsible for each activity such as checking data and results.
Laboratories shall identify the contributions to measurement uncertainty. All significant contributions, including those coming from sampling, shall be included using appropriate methods of analysis when evaluating measurement uncertainty.
The laboratory shall be responsible for having a procedure in monitoring the validity of results. It includes checking the performance by comparison with the results of other laboratories.
Moreover, the laboratory must analyze and use data from monitoring to control and improve the laboratory’s activities. Finally, it must take action when data from the monitoring are found to be outside of pre-defined criteria.
The laboratory’s management system shall address the following:
• Management system documentation (see 8.2)
• Control of management system documents (see 8.3)
• Control of records (see 8.4)
• Actions to address risks and opportunities (see 8.5)
• Improvement (see 8.6)
• Corrective actions (see 8.7)
• Internal audits (see 8.8)
• Management reviews (see 8.9)
A laboratory meets at least the intent of the management system requirements specified in 8.2 to 8.9 if it:
• has determined and retains a management system in accordance with the ISO 9001 requirements.
• is capable of supporting and proving the consistent fulfillment of the requirements of Clauses 4 to 7.
