Why Choose this Training Course?

This comprehensive PetroKnowledge training course will illustrate the ISO17025 requirements for testing laboratories, relevant to the operation of their management system, technical competency, validity of analytical results, and the use of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) as a tool in satisfying the above. In particular, the importance of LIMS implementation in meeting the traceability requirements of ISO 17025 will be addressed.

The PetroKnowledge training course will also demonstrate the compliance of ISO 17025 with those ISO 9001 and GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) requirements that are relevant to the scope of testing services. In addition, Management and Technical personnel of analytical laboratories will recognize the dire need of implementation of the Standard within their Organization to satisfy the needs of their customers and general market needs (e.g., Regulatory Authorities and organizations providing recognition).  

This Petroknowledge training course will feature:

  • Management requirements of ISO 17025 Quality manual, Document control, Tenders, Suppliers, Service to the customer, Internal audits
  • Technical requirements of ISO 17025 Personnel, Equipment, Traceability, Reference standards, Sampling, Quality assurance of results, Test Certificates, O & I’s
  • Definition of Laboratory accreditation: Accreditation Bodies (AB’s) and Multilateral Agreements (MLA, MRA, ILAC) on cross frontier recognition of accreditation
  • Basic guidelines on the design of a LIMS
  • Implementation of a LIMS, in the context of ISO 17025

What are the Goals?

By the end of this Petroknowledge training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand and implement Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) in their organizations
  • Comprehend the importance of assuring quality of test and calibration results
  • Apply traceability from sample receipt and analysis scheduling until delivery of results, through the implementation of LIMS
  • Design LIMS based on ISO 17025 requirements
  • Realize the need for continuous review and improvement of LIMS systems, based on market and regulatory requirements

Who is this Training Course for?

This Petroknowledge training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals involved in Quality Assurance (QA) in analytical laboratories, but will greatly benefit:

  • Management and technical personnel of analytical laboratories, in a wide spectrum of activities (e.g., oil refinery, food and utility industries including potable and wastewater treatment plants, and commercial analytical laboratories)
  • Technicians, Specialists and other personnel involved in laboratories
  • Those laboratories that are in the process of obtaining ISO 17025 accreditation and those planning to implement a LIMS
  • Newly recruited laboratory scientific personnel
  • Laboratory accreditation consultants
