If you are thinking of preparing an ISO 17025 2017 version Laboratory Management System (LMS) then where do you start? We start with a Gap Analysis to determine the gap between your current management system and an ISO 17025 conforming LMS. A Gap Analysis is used to assess an organizations scope, readiness, and its resources for building the system. It also provides us with the data to develop a project plan for ISO implementation.
This gap analysis checklist can be used in evaluating your Laboratory Management System (LMS) against the requirements of ISO 17025:2017 as you transition from ISO 17025:2005 to ISO 17025:2017.
New requirements and / or new terminology are highlighted in bold red.
The second column is intended to provide reference / comparison to the ISO 17025:2005 requirements.
Comments in the second column in bold red font indicate removed / missing requirements.
