INTERNAL LABORATORY

#1
Hi everyone

I have a doubt. I'm working in a automotive company.

Currently, calibrations of dimensional measuring instruments are done through an external laboratory.
But, in search of reducing costs associated with external calibrations, you want to take a course with a qualified entity to perform external calibrations.

my question is, once, we have the training to perform these internal calibrations.

Should we also have ISO 17025 certification?
I mean, is this a mandatory requirement of IATF 16949?

I really appreciate the support you can give me,

Greetings

While you wait for a direct answer, feel free to scroll down on the page and see similar threads, as this issue has been discussed many times in the past. Please also note that, when it comes to ISO 17025, the proper term is accredited, not certified.

Good luck.

An internal laboratory does not have to be accredited to ISO 17025
Please read the clause
7.1.5.3.1 Internal Laboratory which explains the requirements
The standard also states
NOTE Third-party accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 or national equivalent may be used to
demonstrate the organization's in-house laboratory conformity to this requirement.

ISO 17025 certification is not required for internal laboratory. However, you will still need to develop laboratory scope showing what are being calibrated and how they are calibrated (maximum permissible error, standards, etc.). Example is listing digital caliper, MPE ±0.02, calibration per ASME B89.1.14-2018, etc.

You will be fine if you have training records and comply to ISO 17025, meaning have what standards you used to calibrate and the before and after results --> As received and As returned.
