ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is an ISO standard used by testing and calibration laboratories
to show competence in their ability to perform specific tests or calibrations.

ISO/IEC 17025 was initially published in 1999. A revision was added in 2005 and
the standard was recently updated in November 2017.
ISO/IEC 17025 enhances the acceptance of products across national borders. By
removing the need for additional calibration, testing, medical testing and/or
inspection of imports and exports, technical barriers to trade are reduced. In this
way, the free-trade goal of a ‘product tested or calibrated once and accepted
everywhere’ can be realized.
