During the "pre-assessment" phase, organizations that are seeking certification will undergo an evaluation to determine its readiness for the "formal assessment". It involves a detailed review of management system documentation, procedures, and practices against the requirements that are outlined in ISO 17025. The goal of the pre-assessment is to identify any gaps that need to be addresed before moving forward and gives organizations an opportunity to evaluate its preparedness, make improvements, and meet compliance standards. When the pre-assessment is thorough, organizations will increase teh chance of a successful ISO 17025 certification process.

Formal Assessment

During the "formal assessment" phase, the team at GL Technologies will thoroughly evaluate the laboratory's QMS (quality management system), technical competency, and how it sticks to the requirements outlined in ISO 17025. This process will involve a document review, on-site inspections, and interviews with laboratory personnel. The goal is evaluate the laboratory's ability to produce accurate and reliable results while maintaining data integrity.

Corrective Action

When the root cause or identification of non-conformites are found, correct action will take place followed by the implementation of measures to prevent reoccurence. The process involves steps that include documenting non-conformity, analyize the cause of these issues, developing corrective measures, and verifying the effectiveness of these measures. By implementing corrective actions, organizations will earn or maintain compliance with ISO 17025 requirements.


After the quality management system is in place, an accredited certification company, like GL Technologies, will conduct an on-site assessment to evalute the lab's copmliance with the ISO 17025 standards. We provide a thorough review of the documentation, observation of research activities, and testing. If the laboratory is able to demonstrate and meet the ISO 17025 requirements, it will be awarded certification which will show the company's competence, reliability, and commitment to accurate results for clients.
