I have a project to accredit ISO/ IEC 17025:2005 calibration lab.
The issue here is how do I apply quality assurance clause to the calibration lab. the proficiency tests, ILC, Inter personnel correlation etc.
Thanks

Good morning,

I found this site, which has a link to a sample spreadsheet to help comply with 5.9. I am not affiliated with this group.

In addition, A2LA has put out a guidance document that I hope will help. I am not affiliated with A2LA either.

Re: Clause 5.9 for Calibration Lab

Hi there!

What is the project? Are you saying that one particular project will need be audited for accreditation, but nothing else?

How about the rest of the standard? Are you operating the current in accordance with the standard?

Do you have validated/accepted procedures for the project?

If you could, give us a little more of what you have going on.:)

First question: what disciplines do you calibrate for? That will help in directing you toward a solution.

Next thing to understand regarding proficiency testing and inter-laboratory comparisons (PT/ILC). Accrediting bodies (ABs) can EITHER accredit PT providers OR offer PT themselves, but not both.

Now, if there is no PT available, and if there are no labs available that do the same thing so you can complete an ILC, then the other examples kick in.

First thing to do is read the verbiage in 5.9.1, and remember that there are other ways to comply.

PT/ILC is directed - where available - by ILAC/APLAC because it is a bookmarking of the lab against other labs with a comparable scope.

If you have selected an AB, then ask them whether they have any available.

Hope this helps.
