What kind of requirements should have an internal lab of a ISO 9001 certified organization ( within a certain scope) to eventually sell outside its services concerning with some testing on material or chemical tests to universities or research centers?
Should it change the ISO 9001 certication scope to enlarge the it or pursue ISO 17025 accredidation on certain set of measures or what else?
What kind of legal requirements should the lab have?
thanks for your contribution:bigwave:

First thing you need to know is what your customer base actually needs. Even if you do not need to move beyond ISO9001, you should develop the LABORATORY quality system to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005, including proficiency testing and especially an uncertainty budget. That means you will be working at the level expected internationally. If you then to seek accreditation, you will be much more prepared for it.

Also, should you need to seek accreditation, you should go to www.ilac.org and find the accrediting body(ies) for your country or the closest to it, and contact them.

Hope this helps.
