ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is the international standard that provides requirements for testing and calibration laboratories. There are two main clauses in ISO/IEC 17025 i.e. Management Requirements and Technical Requirements which need to be fulfilled to achieve this recognition.
This standard was published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 165 national standards bodies; in partnership with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), a not-for-profit organisation that works independently of any government; hence it is called as ISO/IEC 17025:2017.
