Presented live by an instructor in one four-hour period.
The concept of risk was introduced in the 2017 edition of ISO/IEC 17025. While the standard requires laboratories to address risks and opportunities, it does not provide specific approaches to meet the requirements. In additional, the process approach to many ISO/IEC 17025:2017 requirements gives the laboratory the ability to control their processes through risk-based thinking. This live session will provide an introduction to the concept of risk-based thinking, review the standard requirements, and provide a simple approach to identifying and addressing risks and opportunities. By defining risk-based thinking and identifying related requirements, this course will assist accredited laboratories in applying the approach successfully.
