Changes in the standard and what you must do to update your QMS

Description

Many laboratories have successfully developed 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. Some are still struggling to get accredited and even those already accredited still have issues as evidenced by the number of non-conformances cited during the subsequent biannual audits. Have the rules changed? What are the new requirements of ISO/IEC 17015:2017? How does the new standard impact laboratories that are already accredited and how do you ensure staff adherence and ongoing compliance to minimize corrective actions arising from accreditation audits?

Why should you attend

ISO/IEC 17025:2005 is the international standard for the General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories and is in the process of being updated and revised. The new version is expected to be released sometime in 2017. What are the changes and how will they impact your current Quality Management System? Similarly, developing a QMS is a prerequisite for getting accredited. What are the new requirements that need to be addressed? This webinar will discuss the changes in the standard and what you must do to update your QMS to meet the new requirements.
