ISO/IEC 17025 is an international standard for evaluating the competence of calibration laboratories. It includes portions of the ISO 9001 standards relating to organization and management plus it encompasses the entire calibration system to produce metrics for the:
• Calibration rig components,
• Administrative systems for process operations,
• Personnel proficiency,
•. Documentation supporting the traceability
•. Total measurement uncertainty for the entire calibration facility
By its stringent procedures, ISO/IEC 17025 ensures that the entire calibration process is traceable to the International System of Units (SI), personnel are technically competent and methods and practices in place produce precise and valid results.
