ISO/IEC General requirements for the competence of for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, and I would like. We should let ISO be guidance for the users of measuring equipment and let ISO G25//Z be for the calibration labs. ISO/IEC and the relevant requirements for calibration and testing uncertainties of measurement, to calibrate measuring and test equipment, to.

Calibdation The Z requires sufficient laboratory personnel with the necessary technical and educational requirements for their assigned duties. The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical committees. Document Control The Z includes a general statement about documentation control that is arguably ambiguous. Job Descriptions The Z requires job descriptions for key personnel and makes reference to job descriptions for other personnel.


Laboratories need to fully investigate these two standards and come to an understanding of their differences. An organization, for example, could have a quality management systems that is certified to ISO Confidentiality of Customer Information Both standards require documented policies and procedures to ensure the confidentiality of customer information. The requires job descriptions for managerial, technical, and key personnel and encourages job descriptions for personnel involved in calibration or testing.

Thehowever, requires a procedure for the review and retention of all records pertaining to requests, tenders, or contracts. Root Cause Analysis Samples.

The requires laboratories to establish and maintain a procedure for quality and technical records. If the customer requires calibration services only, either standard may be applicable, though only the meets international requirements.

The methods used for the measurement management system range from basic equipment verification to the application of statistical techniques in the measurement process control. From the scope of ISO The laboratory and the client must fully understand and agree on the calibration or testing services provided. Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. This part of the standard is not accessible to you.


Finally, where the Z requires a calbration statement, the calls for proof of traceability.

Difference Between ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 10012

ISO is a guidance document and not intended for certification. Calibration and Testing Services. It specifies the quality management requirements of a measurement management system that can be used by an organization calubration measurements 100012-1 part of the overall management system, and to ensure metrological requirements are met.

Basic methods for the determination of repeatability and reproducibility of a standard measurement method. Opinions and Interpretations The allows for opinions and interpretations to be documented on a test report. In the remainder of this article, we outline some of the importance differences between the two major standards. This is an issue of legal responsibility and accountability for the calibration work performed by the laboratory or organization.

Difference Between ISO/IEC and ISO –

Client or Customer Service Requests The Z does not require procedures for contract, request, or tender review. Measurement Traceability The Z requires traceability of measurements to national standards, international standards, or intrinsic standards that have been compared to other intrinsic standards, particularly those of national labs.

Intermediate measures of the calibratiom of a standard measurement method. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. Introduction An effective measurement management system ensures that measuring equipment and measurement processes are fit for their intended use and is important in achieving product quality objectives and managing the risk of incorrect measurement results. Any laboratories seeking accreditation will be assessed to Only the covers both calibration and testing 10012-11.

For testing services, only the applies. Use in practice of accuracy values. Corrective and Preventive Actions The Z contains a general statement about procedures for corrective actions regarding measurement discrepancies or departures from documented procedures. Laboratories and their customers therefore need to consider four different situations in deciding which standard to apply. The Z also requires statements of traceability on calibration reports.

For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document including any amendments applies. References to this International Standard can be made. You can consider it a system within the quality management system.

  ISO 8536-4 PDF

The is clearer, requiring written procedures for the control of all quality system documents with regards to approval, issue, review, and change. However, whereas the Z does not specifically address electronic storage and transmission of customer data, requires documented procedures and calibation to protect the confidentiality of such electronic data.

The Z is less emphatic on this point 01012-1 states that the laboratory must be legally identifiable. Technical Records The goal of the record system identified in the Z is to retain sufficient information to repeat a calibration under identical conditions.

The competence referred to in the title of the standard relates to the competence of the entire system — not just training of personnel. If customers choose to add these elements to their requirements, their scope of accreditation can reflect compliance to the Z Part 1.

In summary, ISO is a guidance document that addresses one element namely management of a measurement system of a quality management system. Metrological confirmation generally includes calibration and verification, any necessary adjustment or repair, and subsequent recalibration, comparison with the metrological requirements for the intended use of the equipment, as well as any required sealing and labelling.

NVLAP is currently in the process of developing the checklist for Z requirements not addressed in That reaffirmation continues Z for five more years. Both internal and externally generated documentation such as regulations, standards, procedures, test or calibrations instructions, drawings, software procedures, equipment specifications, and manuals are included.

Interested parties can agree to use this International Standard as an input for satisfying measurement management system requirements in certification activities. This traceability is established through the laboratory standards in an unbroken chain of calibrations through appropriate primary standards and may be made through national measurement standards.

No article or discussion of the differences can replace the personal knowledge of the laboratory personnel responsible for implementation of the standards in the organization.
