Notice of Transition to
ISO/IEC 17025:2017

JANAAC, in keeping with an ISO/ILAC 17025:2017 transition communique, requires all testing and calibration 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. Testing and calibration laboratories may continue to submit applications for accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 up to December 31, 2018. After December 31, 2018, however, JANAAC will no longer be accepting applications for ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation. Re-assessment or surveillance visits, however, done after December 31, 2018 will be done using the new standard. Please contact JANAAC for further information or clarifications.
