What Are The Differences Between ISO 17025 And ISO 13485?

ISO 17025 stands for TESTING AND CALIBRATION LABORATORIES. It also helps facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies by generating wider acceptance of results between countries. Test reports and certificates can be accepted from one country to another without the need for further testing, which, in turn, improves international trade hence, ISO 17025 accreditation is not equivalent to ISO 13485 certification.

 ISO 13485 stands for MEDICAL DEVICES — QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS, helps in complying with a specific quality system. ISO 17025 certified through accreditation board but ISO 13485 by certification body. Process steps involved in 17025 & ISO 13485,
