This one day highly practical and interactive course, Understanding ISO 17025 for Forensic Laboratories, is designed to acquaint delegates with the requirements of ISO 17025, in the context of other documents relating to Forensic Science Laboratories (i.e. FSR Codes of Practice and Conduct and ILAC G19)

ISO 17025:2017 is the internationally recognised standard for the independent accreditation of laboratories. The standard can be applied to a wide range of laboratory activities, but this course focuses on its application in forensic laboratories.

  • Relationship with ISO 9001:2015 and ISO/IEC 17020:2012 in relation to an end-to-end Forensic process
  • Inter-relationship with other documents such as the FSR Codes of Practice and Conduct and ILAC G-19
  • Availability of supporting information and guidance provided by the FSR and National Accreditation Body (UKAS) for Forensic testing laboratories

  • Laboratory Quality/Technical Managers involved in Forensic testing activities
  • Laboratory Technicians/Supervisors involved in Forensic testing activities
  • Assessors of Laboratory Management Systems especially those assessors working in a Forensic laboratory-based environment
  • Users of forensic testing services

By the end of this Understanding ISO 17025 training course, delegates will be able to:

  • Interpret the requirements of ISO 17025 and understand the key requirements of the relevant FSR and ILAC documents relevant to the testing performed within Forensic laboratories
  • Understand the relationships between supporting documentation and guidance provided by FSR/ILAC and UKAS for Forensic laboratories.
