Excerpt: Reliable analytical methods are required for compliance with national and international regulations in all areas of analysis. It is accordingly internationally recognized that a laboratory must take appropriate measures to ensure that it is capable of providing and does provide data of the required quality. Such measures include: // using validated methods of analysis; // using internal quality control procedures; // participating in proficiency testing schemes; and // becoming accredited to an International Standard, normally ISO/IEC 17025. It should be noted that accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 specifically addresses the establishment of traceability for measurements, as well as requiring a range of other technical and management requirements including all those in the list above.
