ISO 17025:2017 Management System Introduction


The ISO 17025:2017 Management System Template is a turn-key solution for fulfilling ISO 17025:2017 requirements. It provides laboratories with an organized filing system in addition to a quality manual, policies, procedures, forms, and lists. Some folders are intentionally empty! The empty folders are designated storage locations for future records that will be collected by the user's laboratory over time.

Each Management System file is uniquely identified and has a designated storage location with a unique identifier. The unique identifiers simplify cross referencing storage locations and files from anywhere within the Management System. The file name prefix "EIR" designates an Electronic Information Repository. A complete listing of the files and storage locations is provided in EIR-013 Records and Documents List.

While we've done our best to provide as much quality content as possible, each laboratory's situation will be unique depending on their field and scope of testing and/or calibration. Because each laboratory's requirements are unique, some of the Management System's content must be created by the laboratory to meet their specific needs. Placeholder text files are provided to remind the Management System user of this need.

The best way to become familiar with the ISO 17025:2017 Management System Template is to start by reviewing the Quality Manual. The Quality Manual is stored in the folder EIR-002 Policy and Procedures. The name of the Quality Manual file is QM-001 ISO 17025 Quality Manual.docx.

With a few exceptions, the clause numbering in QM-001 ISO 17025 Quality Manual aligns with the clause numbering of ISO 17025:2017. This enables quick and efficient comparisons between the requirements of ISO 17025:2017 and the laboratory's management system.
