We are a company that holds registrations to ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and AS9100. Our subsidiary laboratory is ISO 17025. We are considering ceasing operations as a commercial lab and reverting back to an in-house support lab for R&D and specialty QC testing. Due to budgetary considerations we need to trim personnel and costs that are not deemed essential. Should we drop the ISO 17025? What are the pros and cons of maintaining this certification? What are the true costs of such a program?
