MET is Now Fully Accredited to ISO 17025:2017
This year’s audit of MET by UKAS was conducted to the new version of the gold standard QMS for testing laboratories.
This new version: ISO/IEC 17025:2017 General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, has been updated to include more detail on contractual relationships. It has also moved closer to GMP/ GLP although there are still some significant differences.
MET’s new accreditation certificate can be found on the UKAS web site.
The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is recognised by the UK government to assess testing laboratories against internationally agreed standards. It is the only national accreditation body for the United Kingdom. Accreditation demonstrates the competence, impartiality and performance capability of the accredited laboratory.
