Excerpt from ISO/IEC 17025 International Standard:
“Growth in the use of management systems generally has increased the need to ensure that laboratories which form part of larger organizations or offer other services can operate to a quality management system that is seen as compliant with ISO 9001 as well as with this International Standard. Care has been taken, therefore, to incorporate all those requirements of ISO 9001 that are relevant to the scope of testing and calibration services that are covered by the laboratory’s management system.
Testing and calibration laboratories that comply with this International Standard will therefore also operate in accordance with ISO 9001.”
