Importance of standard 17025:
Standard 17025 has been developed for laboratories that operate based on quality management systems and want to prove their technical competence. This standard, which is the result of the experiences gained from the successful implementation of 25 IEC / ISO and the European standard of EN 45001, is now a suitable alternative for both of them. This system is a management system for calibration and test labs and does not have a management framework only, but examines the activities of laboratories by providing solutions for measured quantities and methods. Therefore, it has both measurement validity and continuous improvement of laboratory activity.
 The most important advantages of obtaining 17025 certificates:
Improving the quality (accuracy) of test results and their reliability;
Acceptance of laboratories as a reference and partner laboratory by the Institute of Standards and Industrial Research;
Satisfaction of changes in government and industry requirements and regulations for testing;
Attention to the qualifications of laboratory staff and their promotion;
Ensuring continuous calibration of laboratory equipment;
Standardization of executive and managerial methods of laboratories;
Improving the level of customer orientation;
Satisfying the recipients of services as much as possible and gaining their increasing trust in the laboratory
