ISO 17025 Requirement 6.2 - Department Manager Testing Qualifications

#1
Dear all,

could you give me advice how to satisfy requirements for personnel competences if it is applied for testing laboratory - for Non destructive testing.
My question is: Can department Manager (person responsible for the laboratory activities) be person who is not certified as NDT Level 3?
How does it comply with EA-4/15 G:2015 requirements?
My company has certified NDT level 3 personnel for every accredited method, but once again, does department manager who will lead department shall be also level 3?

Thank you in advance for help.

From what i can tell (from a quick google search on what is NDT and EA-4/15 G:2015) you should'nt have a problem as long as:

your department manager is not responsible for reviewing (technical) test reports or technical employee qualification reviews, i think it matters most that he/she is qualified in 17025 if he is approving test reports.

as long as you can evidence that your department manager is competent to perform whatever activities he/she is directly involved in performing regarding accredited requirements then you should be fine, he/she certainly doesn't have to be a technical expert if he doesn't perform technical work (reviewing technical work is also technical work IMO), but your management system has to reflect this wherever you have stated authorized roles and responsibilities.

that's my 2 cents on that
