iso 17025 registrars



Can anyone help me pinpoint the registrars that work with 17025. I am trying to estimate costs. Thanks


Fully vaccinated are you?
I don't know that much about 17025 registrars. You might want to ask on Greg Gogates listserer. They're the professionals up to their ears in it.

NSF has an agreement with LAB to provide certification to 17025. The certificate still comes from LAB, but NSF does all of the adminstration and they can "merge" the audit with ISO 9000 or other standards and use the same auditor for both, assuming the auditor is qualified for both. It depends on your scope. They apparently have this agreement with other registrars. Check out:

You may also be able to find out more through A2LA at

Who the regisrars are depends on where you are ... as you are not registered then we don't know that. Here are some sources to get you started.

United States:


An international organization that specifically works in this area is ILAC - International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation

This should help get you started. All of these organizations have very helpful information about laboratory accreditation in general as well as details of their programs.
