ISO 17025 Standard is a system of standards on quality management that is specifically applied for the testing-calibration sector. ISO 17025 is enforced and developed by ISO – International Organization for Standardization.
ISO/IEC 17025 Standard, which is considered internationally standardized, is to certify the capacity of testing and calibration laboratories playing important roles in commerce, production development, products and customer protection.
Different from standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, etc, ISO 17025 applies the assessment form of recognition, but not certification. The Board of Acknowledgement in Vietnam is doing ISO 17025 certification work here.

What is the current version of ISO 17025?
ISO/IEC 17025:2017 replaced ISO 17025:2005 version
After laboratories have been certified by ISO 17025, can they implement experimenting activities with products that are sent to them by customer units?
In terms of professional competence, there is no problem. Whether the business license of laboratories has the capacity of testing or experimental business or not and whether in the process of registration for recognition they register these activities or not need to be considered.
Do laboratories certified by ISO 17025 need ISO 9001 certification?
ISO/IEC 17025 justifies that the experimenting capacity meet requirements, ISO 9001 helps to manage the work of satisfying customers. However, ISO 17025 is completely suitable with ISO 9001. Therefore, ISO 9001 certification can shorten time and minimize labour.
