PT/ILC - No Approved Programs within our Scope of Accreditation

Hi all,

I have recently started my journey (with no experience may I add) to get my calibration laboratory ISO/IEC 17025 accredited.

I contacted L-A-B (my chosen accreditation body) and it so happens there are no approved programs within our scope of accreditation. I am just curious if I have to search for and propose use of a non-approved laboratory, or could I simply create a program within our laboratory to satisfy the PT/ILC policy?'

Also, what would be the first steps in creating or proposing to L-A-B a "Non-PT Provider Scheme"

Thank you!

Perhaps other labs, who are themselves traceable and accredited in the disciplines of interest, would join you in a round-robin--especially if you volunteered to be the pivot lab. Perhaps one already exists and you could join.
Your AB may be able to point the way.

Somebody will have to foot the bill for the artifact(s) or SRM's.

Each AB will have policies on addressing this issue, as it is not uncommon. In general, if no PT/ILC exists, and cannot be easily arranged between yourself and other labs, then go back to the verbiage of the Clause, which is where the actual requirement is. Then see how you can meet the requirement. Run that by your AB, in this case L-A-B.

However, if an ILC can easily be arranged, that is the better approach. Make sure that L-A-B gets copies of the results.

Hope this helps.
