    Hello I wanted to ask a question..... will you have a Quality manual once accredited to 17025:2017?
    it does not appear to be a requirement, so why would you need one?

    It is not mandatory to have, however, we still need such document to introduce the lab activities and to describe the management system and to fulfill the structural requirements as well.

    A quality Manual is not required but the Quality system would have to have a Procedure for every element of the standard that would state the scope, policy and how it was accomplished is. this approach would replace some of the requirements that a manual would fulfill.

    Hello People,
    i agree with the view that it is advisable to have a Quality Manual in place as it is the basic document for introduction of the lab. secondly would also suggest that the Procedure manual (prepared in lieu of 2005 standard requirements) be kept intact or upgraded. this will ensure that the process is cascaded to all levels.
    in the recent interactions that i have had with a few auditors, it was evident that all audits will now be objective. irrespective whether you have a documented procedure or not, it has to be verified.

    now i wanted to enquire whether there are any templates available for preparing the Quality manual as per 2017 requirements.
