Actually, that's a comparison of ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 Part I and ANSI/ISO/IEC 17025:2000. Anyone care to find a comparison between ANSI/NCSL Z540.3-2006 and ANSI/ISO/IEC 17025:2005?

Welcome to the Cove - we always ask new folks to take the time to perform a search of the forums, since the chances are, you're not the first to ask this question!

Come back and post if you don't get any luck with the search........

Re: What is the difference between ISO 10725 and ANSI Z540.3

First question to ask, are you accredited by a MRA signatory AB? (IAS, NVLAP, A2LA, L-A-B, ACLASS) If yes, then concentrate on Z540.3 Clause 5.3, which is for accredited calibration providers (aka calibration servicing component).....if you service military primarily, then you - MAY - be required to do the entire Z540.3, in which case, wait till the handbook is released in a couple of months.

Hope this helps.

Re: What is the difference between ISO 10725 and ANSI Z540.3

Sorry, I have to resurrect this thread.

From what I understand, the Z540.1 is now obsolete and is being replaced with the Z540.3. I mentioned this in my internal audit, and our auditor says that this is not right, and that the Z540.3 is a completely different "animal" (in my auditors words) that the Z540.1. He also says we should be referencing Z540.1 on our certs.

I'm getting really frustrated on this because Z540.1 has been superceded, so using it goes against 17025 specs of using the most current standard. Can someone please help me on this???
