Laboratories that are accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025 international standard have demonstrated that they are technically competent and able to produce precise and accurate test and/or calibration data. The accreditation is a voluntary, third party-reviewed process. As part of accreditation, a laboratory’s quality management system (QMS) is thoroughly evaluated, and all accredited tests are observed by an auditor on a regular basis to ensure continued technical competence and compliance with ISO/IEC 17025.
