Participate and return home with solutions:

This International Master Class will on the one hand bring together laboratory personnel who are responsible for the implementation, maintenance, improvement and operation of the laboratory management system, with experienced international trainers and representatives of an accreditation body. They will discuss and most importantly investigate how to apply the revised international standard ISO/IEC 17025.

The first of these classes was organised in June 2018 in Zagreb and participants from 9 different countries joined and also shared their issues and experiences.

The focus of this three-day event will be the practical application of the new standard. The intention is to have a very interactive course, with problem based learning. Participants will leave with knowledge and skills to get from theory into practical application and to discover what is the most cost effective way to adapt the standard to their organisation. They will also have an opportunity to discuss with the trainers and their peers on their very specific issues they are struggling with.

Aim:

At the end of this master class, you will be able to

  • IMPLEMENT effectively requirements of the new standard
  • SET UP a plan of what to undertake inside your organisation in the next year
  • INTERPRET the changes needed to manage the transition of your laboratory management system
  • FACILITATE implementation of risk base thinking

 

Who should attend?

  • Laboratory personnel who are responsible for the implementation, maintenance, improvement or operation of the laboratory management system
  • Laboratory assessors and internal auditors
  • Laboratory staff involved in training colleagues


Prerequisites:

Familiarity with ISO/IEC 17025:2005.


Learning methods

This course strongly emphases practical application of theoretical concepts (risk-based thinking, competence orientation, process approach, decision rules etc.). To achieve this, theoretical parts of the course will be accompanied by interactivity, group assignments and discussions.


Topics:

  • Key changes in ISO/IEC 17025
  • Impartiality and confidentiality
  • Structural requirements
  • Resource requirements
  • Process requirements
  • Management system requirements
