You do have an interesting though not unusual situation.

First thing to do is get a copy of the Standard and read it, if you have not already.

You can't bring in a consultant, but if management is willing to send you to training then get training in ISO/IEC 17025 and in uncertainty.

Write your apex quality manual, addressing every Clause of the Standard. Something may not apply to your lab. If so, then state that and state why.

The procedures are a bit easier. The approach I would take since you are using ASTM, is to have a cover that clearly states that the ASTM itself becomes the procedure. Then you do not have to write specific procedures, which will save time and effort.

If you have friends that you know in places like Saudi Aramco (I know they have accreditation already) then they may be able to give you some unofficial advice.

Once you are ready for accreditation, then you will need to know whether you want to use EJAC (Egyptian National accrediting body) or some other body.

Hope this helps to get you started.

Feel free to post questions here.

Hope this helps.
