good morning my friends...

i would like to ask about something found in my lab....
the calibration standard methods which are found in the lab are too old and the new standards can't discuss the procedures (that for Egyptian organisation for standards {EOS}).

so,i have no alternatives to add references for my SOP (internal procedures for the lab) except the reference books which are found (ex:"Traceable Temperatures". J.V. Nicholas and D.R. White,......etc) beside to the old national satndards???

will the auditor make a non-compliance for the item (5.4 test and calibrationmethods and method validation)

P.s: my lab is processing for the accreditation,so i want to know whether i'm working right or wrong ???

Best regards...:yes:

Some of whether you take a non-conformance will rest on the availability within Egypt to obtain the newer, more updated procedures, whether the procedures will need translation, and so forth.

If the procedures are readily available and would only need to be adopted by Egypt or even need translation, then the documentation of the issue may be written is a Concern or Opportunity for Improvement rather than a corrective action, but the Accreditng Body will make that decision.

If the newer procedures are not available then the Accrediting Body and the assessor(s) may give some room to for the lab to develop updated procedures in-house and validate the updated procedures.

The best thing to do is to get in touch with your chosen Accrediting Body, explain the issue, and obtain their opinion before the assessment. Then you can begin working on this before the assessor comes to vist.

Hope this helps.
