The real achievement is a more efficient quality system that supports your business.

While getting ISO17025 accreditation may seem like an end in itself, the true value is broader and has more commercial benefit.

Achieving a recognised quality standard can be done in two ways. On the surface, all it requires is to take the guidelines, produce some documentation, issue new instructions to your lab and ensure everyone follows them.

While that check-box approach to ISO may win an accreditation, it will not produce any lasting business benefit.

Our methods are different.

We begin by asking how a more efficient and professional approach to lab quality process might genuinely support your business objectives.

Being lab people, we also take the time to understand the cultural impact of new procedures and ensure that any recommendations fit the context of your business.

Our aim is to help you create a quality system that is an asset, rather than a disruption, and contributes measurably to the ongoing improvement of your lab.

Creating a system that meets the mark and works for you

For all its necessary process and documentation, every quality system is ultimately reliant upon the attitude and behaviour of the people who observe it.

To introduce new calibration routines, for example, or processes for unexpected results, changes must be woven into existing business procedures and the work of the lab.

Consequently our approach is based on detailed knowledge of ISO17025 requirements, but firmly rooted in their practical application.

We tailor our recommendations to your needs, working with your lab people to propose changes that are workable, and developing training materials that will win support.

Outline of the steps Scimcon takes to help
improve lab quality systems to meet ISO 17025 

Evidence is everything

ISO17025 is an audited standard and requires you to prove that your quality system is not only well designed, but is working.

Our experience in regulated markets, and our familiarity with information systems that are often impacted by ISO17025, gives us unique insight into achieving an accreditation that is practical and beneficial.

With a tailored approach to quality system design, and supporting materials and processes engineered by people with lab experience, we can help you improve your lab, and keep it improving.
