Why Audit?

ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is a management tool which can be used by a Laboratory to better affect its technical competence – the ability to produce consistent results, day-after-day, at specified uncertainties within 95% confidence region.

For any Laboratory, this is perfection, and World Class Performance. It implies stability and trust, key components in the perception of competence.

It is essential for an Laboratory to understand its performance against its requirements; and whenever possible, to identify opportunities for improvement. To achieve these objectives, a Laboratory must set out to conduct internal reviews of itself. These are called internal audits.

The intent of this process is to ensure the Laboratory's knowledge of itself and how it is performing to its requirements. This process is charged to the internal auditor, whether developed from within or hired from outside.

Success in the auditing process is characterized by reliance on a number of principles. These principles make the audit experience an efficient and reliable tool in support of management policies and controls, providing information on which a Laboratory can act to improve its performance.
