Digital Transformation Supports ISO17025 Compliance

In today’s world of competing geological regulatory requirements and quality standards, laboratories face significant challenges to remain compliant while maintaining their operations ISO 17025 is an international standard for testing and analytical equipment which is used for analysis, which determines the requirements for sustainable demand and performance. Compliance with ISO 17025 is not only essential to meet regulatory obligations but also to ensure the accuracy and reliability of laboratory results.

Why ISO 17025 Accreditation?

ISO 17025 Accreditation verifies a laboratory’s technical proficiency in conducting specific testing, measurement, and calibration activities. This results in improved productivity and resource utilization, which  leads  to cost savings for its customers. This accreditation signifies that the laboratory possesses:                                                 


1. An Effective quality management system.

2. Capability and expertise in delivering accurate testing and calibration results.

3. Assurance that tests adhere to international standards (ISO 17025), ensuring that the obtained results are universally acceptable across various governmental and regulatory entities.

A digital transformation platform for automotive testing laboratories streamlines compliance with ISO 17025 by centralizing data management, document control, maintenance tracking, and quality assurance processes.

Here's how a Digital Transformation supports ISO 17025 compliance:

Digital transformation platforms helps to organize and standardize test lab operation, thereby simplifying process adaptability and management.
It acts as a resilient platform for clearly defining project plans, streamline operations, asset and facility management, maintenance, and appropriate resource allocation.

The platform helps to establish defined policies, standard procedures, and instructions needed to ensure test results are accurate. It also maintain a quality manual with all important policy statements required for the ISO/IEC 17025 compliance.

Complete analysis of customer requests, tenders and contracts ensures the technical capability resource sufficiency to ensure compliance. It also involves process management  and managing the procurement of services and supplies to avoid disruptions in lab operations. Furthermore, it also oversees subcontracted tests and calibrations to ensure compliance with required quality standards.

Through systematic digital document control mechanisms, the necessary comprehensive records for asset maintenance and calibration can be tracked and relevant actions can be issued for assets undergoing maintenance, calibration, or breakdown. Systematic procedures for record control, management reviews, and internal audits ensure adherence to ISO/IEC 17025 standards throughout laboratory operations. Measures to address non-conforming testing and calibration work, and we implement preventive & corrective actions to maintain compliance.

Actively engaging in customer interactions and feedback collection enhances service quality, meeting ISO/IEC 17025 standards for customer service. The platform also supports continuous improvement initiatives by enabling regular feedback collection from audit reports, data analysis, and management reviews.

The iASYS digital transformation platform, BRIX, enhances laboratory operations by streamlining processes, ensuring standardization, and offering effective management tools. It serves as a vital component in achieving compliance with ISO/IEC 17025 standards. Centralized digital control over laboratory operations ensures efficiency, accuracy, and compliance with regulatory standards, ultimately contributing to long-term success.
