Hello, I have exhausted my Googling skills and hope someone can assist. We have a Lab with a current 17025 accreditation with A2LA. There is an organizational change that has been proposed that would split the reporting structure of the current lab personnel from reporting into one division and providing testing to other division to dividing the Lab personnel and reporting structure between the two divisions. The split begins at the "Lab Management" level with the expectation that each division have their own Quality Manager, Lab Manager, Engineers, and Technicians. Changes to the processes are currently not being proposed. To make sure it's clear.... Division 1 has 30 employees that provide test results and services to both Division 1 and Division 2 projects. Proposal: Division 1 would have 15 employees that provide test results and services to Division 1 projects. Division 2 would gain 15 employees that provide test results and services to Division 2 projects. Would Division 2 need to pursue its own certification if all else remains the same (same procedures, same equipment, same training requirements)? Or would Division 2 need a new certification because the management structure has changed? Is the certification against a process or an organizational structure or the combination of the two? Thank you.
