Accreditation or certification ?
Several worldwide laboratories, some of which were accompanied by ISONORM, have been certified in the past to be compliant with ISO Guide 25 then ISO 17025 by several international registrars as SGS, MOODY, etc.
Since January 9th 2009, ISO, ILAC, IAF have confirmed conjointly that the standard ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 is from now on, a standard exclusively reserved to the concerned accreditation bodies in order to deliver their accreditation (attestation) certificate, and that it will not be possible any more to respond to a client request for an evidence of competency with a simple certificate of compliance to ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 delivered by a Registrar (certification body).
