Notice of Transition

Notice of Transition to ISO/IEC 17025:2017

JANAAC, in keeping with an ISO/ILAC 17025:2017 transition communique, requires all laboratories to make the transition to the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard by November 2020. During this transition period, ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and ISO/IEC 17025:2017 are equally valid. Laboratories may continue to submit applications for accreditation to ISO/IEC:2005 up to October 31, 2018. After October 31, 2018, however, JANAAC will no longer be accepting applications for ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation. Re-assessment or surveillance visits, however, done after October 31, 2018 will be done using the new standard. Please contact JANAAC for further information or clarifications.

Notice of Transition to ISO/IEC 17011:2017

JANAAC is currently in transition to the new ISO/IEC 17011:2017 standard. As such, all our accredited CABs and new applications will be informed in a timely manner of any accreditation requirements which may be affected. Please contact JANAAC for further information or clarifications.
