The 2017 revision to ISO/IEC 17025 includes better guidance on conformity and a new risk-based approach. In this webinar we discuss the revision in terms of temperature and humidity calibration in life science environments. In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to decide if ISO 17025 is a requirement for your application, or if ISO 9001 calibration is sufficient.
  • How to deal with the revision’s new requirement for clear definitions for specifications and decision rules.
  • How to use risk assessment as a tool to decide which standard to follow for calibrations in regulated environments.
