Guidelines from other organisations

EUROLAB Cook Books


EUROLAB, the European Federation of National Associations of Measurement, Testing and Analytical Laboratories, offers a set of Cook Books for download on their website.

The Cook Books are short documents on quality issues that aim at helping laboratories comply with ISO/IEC 17025 and guide them in the implementation of the standard.

EUROLAB has currently published more than 20 Cook Books dedicated to the specific topical requirements of ISO/IEC 17025, including themes like management system, process and resource requirements.

The individual Cook Books provide information on topics such as ‘Validation of test and calibration methods’, ‘Induction of new staff members’ and ‘Internal audits’.

The documents are continuously updated and available in various languages.
