Our company is registered to ISO9001 and AS9100 with our TestLab also accredited to ISO17025. To date, all testing done by our lab has been on our product only – no external requests,submissions, orders. With respect to testand measurement equipment used in our Test Lab, it has basically been assigned to one of two groups. Group 1 is equipment used for tests that must comply with ISO17025 requirements, and group 2 is equipmentused for tests that are not required to comply with ISO17025 requirements. Consequently, calibration for group 1equipment is performed by an outside company that is accredited to ISO17025,while group 2 equipment is calibrated internally or by an appropriate external calibration house.
Does the ISO17025 standard require that all test and measurement equipment used in an ISO17025 accredited lab be calibrated in accordance with ISO17025, or can this be limited to only that equipment used for tests that must comply with ISO 17025?
