Introduction

Quality management of the laboratory according to international standards is important in order to enhance the laboratory system and environment. Laboratories use ISO 17025 to implement a quality system aimed at improving their ability to consistently produce valid results. A careful analysis of tasks and safety conditions will lead to a redesign of the working environment that will ultimately enhance the overall performance. How to be a quality and internationally accredited laboratory should be the main strategy plan of every laboratory. The aim of the course is to enrich and advance the skills and knowledge of the participants to fully understand the requirements of laboratory accreditation.

Objectives

  • To understand the laboratory quality requirements and appreciate the need for a quality system according to the International Standards Organization ISO 17025.
  • To understand the significance of calibration methods and traceability.
  • Identify the factors which have to be considered when choosing an analysis method.
  • To understand how to validate analytical methods.
  • To use international the Guide to Lab Quality for accreditation standard methods.
  • To recognize the characteristics of a laboratory environment that affect the performance of instruments and hence influence the validity of measurements.
  • To use a standard safety work ethic in the laboratory.

Who Should Attend?

The course is designed for people who implement, maintain and review laboratory quality systems. It is suitable for all laboratory staff including managers, quality assurance officers, lab technicians, chemists, chemical engineers and instrument engineers.
