ISO 17025

Experts your business can bank on re-consult is the first and only Turkish company operating a wind laboratory that is accredited by TÜRKAK as per ISO 17025. ISO 17025 is the main standard used by testing and calibration laboratories. It has much in common with the ISO 9001 standard, but ISO 17025 adds in the concept of competence and applies directly to those organisations that produce testing and calibration results. ISO 17025 imposes greater emphasis on the responsibilities of the senior management and adds explicit requirements for impartiality, technical conditions, continual improvement of the management system itself and in particular, communication with the customer. There are two main aspects to ISO 17025. Management requirements are primarily related to the operation and effectiveness of the quality management system within the laboratory, whereas technical requirements address the competence of staff, methodology and test/calibration equipment. Laboratories use ISO 17025 to implement a quality system aimed at improving their ability to consistently produce valid results. It is also the basis for accreditation from an accreditation body.
