Accreditation is an official recognition of a laboratory's ability to provide analytical services. ISO 17'025 is specially adapted for laboratories. It asks the laboratory to identify all the parameters likely to have an influence on its test results (analyzes) and to set up documented and traceable processes to ensure their control.
