IMPORTANT INFORMATION
OVERVIEW
The European Organization for Quality training course is designed to teach laboratory
personnel and future laboratory assessors how to install, maintain and improve Laboratory
Quality Management System that meets the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025, ISO 15189:2012
Standards and OECD GLP, and applicable for the laboratories of any size and any activities
related to calibration and testing. In addition, this course gives essential knowledge required
for Laboratory Quality Manager to act as the management representative and as the promoter
of the customer requirements awareness throughout the organization and for Laboratory
Assessors to apply management skills required in the execution of an audit. After this training
the participants will be able to perform internal and third party audits proving conformance
with the relevant standards and technical recommendations (e.g. ISO 17025:2005, ISO
15189:2012 and OECD GLP) taking laboratory orientation into account where necessary.
This modular training program includes 9 interrelated workshop and examination:
Workshop 01: Understanding ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and ISO 15189:2012 Management System
Workshop 02: Quality Assurance and Quality Documentation in Calibration and Testing Laboratories
Workshop 03: Basic Statistical Tools for Laboratories
Workshop 04: Internal Quality Control for Laboratories
Workshop 05: Quantifying Uncertainty in Analytical Measurements
Workshop 06: Traceability in Chemical Measurements
Workshop 07: Inter-laboratory Quality Control Measures
Workshop 08: Project Management: Implementing Quality Management System in Laboratories
Workshop 09: Laboratory Audit
The workshops also can be attended selectively, and the participants will be awarded a
certificate of completion.
