This course will provide students with a general overview of ISO/IEC 17025. Most of the elements of the standard will be reviewed, as well as the standard’s applicability, origin, purpose, and marketplace. Important concepts such as document control, internal auditing, proficiency testing, traceability, measurement uncertainty, and method witnessing will be reviewed. There will also be a discussion on the international oversight of the standard and recognition.
