Accreditation Requirements - Facility laboratory either on-site or remote location


T. Conder

We have several manufacturing plants in the U.S. that provide finished products to the automotive companies and are currently QS 9000 registered, and working towards ISO/TS 16949. Section 4.10.6 of ISO/TS 16949 requires that a facilities laboratory (either on-site or at a remote location) that conducts inspection, testing or calibrations must comply with ISO/IEC 17025. Does this imply that a remote off-site laboratory conducting PPAP testing (i.e. chemical, functional, weathering, etc) in support of the plants, must also comply with ISO/IEC 17025?
