ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is the most recent version of ISO 17025, updated from 2005. In major countries, ISO/IEC 17025 is the standard most labs must hold accreditation to be deemed technically competent. There are many commonalities with the ISO 9001 standard, but ISO/IEC 17025 is more specific in requirements for competence, applies directly to those organizations that produce testing and calibration results, and is based upon more technical principles producing many benefits for laboratories. Overall, labs use ISO/IEC 17025 to implement a quality management system (QMS), intending to improve their ability to be consistent with producing valid results
