Laboratory management according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025

Today, accreditation is often a prerequisite for the recognition of laboratory results, as it shows the client that the laboratory is competent, impartial and trustworthy. At the same time, it increases the quality and safety of products, services and processes and facilitates access to export markets.
In the field of testing and calibration, "DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018-03 General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories" is the globally valid standard for laboratory accreditation.
All testing and calibration laboratories that are interested in proving their competence and impartiality and in the recognition of their results should therefore be accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018-03 or at least know, understand and fulfil the requirements of this standard.
In this one day seminar, an accreditation expert will teach you all the essential contents of DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018-03.
