Joint ISO and ILAC 17025:2017 Transition Communiqué Published

ISO and ILAC have issued a joint communiqué that re-confirms that a three-year transition period will be allowed for accredited laboratories to transition to the 2017 version of ISO/IEC 17025.

While both the 2005 and 2017 versions of ISO/IEC 17025 will remain valid during the three-year transition period, accreditations to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 will be invalid from 30 November 2020, as per the ILAC Resolution GA 20.15 adopted in November 2016.

The ISO/ILAC 17025:2017 Transition Communique is available from here

ISO has also published a brochure and video that summarises the key changes adopted in the 2017 version of ISO/IEC 17025.
