A laboratory must take active steps to check that its quality system is being operated
Properly and that it is achieving the required standard of quality. Quality control provides some feedback on these issues but this is not, in itself, sufficient to meet the requirements of ISO 17025. The system must be pro-active and provide assurance of quality. Moreover, the quality system itself must be under constant scrutiny.
However, the assessors will be far more interested in satisfying themselves that you have a robust management system which will maintain compliance on a routine basis.
ISO Standards requires audit and review of the system on a planned and regular basis, plus ongoing monitoring to detect quality problems and even to anticipate and prevent problems. These are all strategies designed to detect actual or potential non conformances.

quality system can be improved and do you act on this?
The questions in the self-examination questionnaire they are the kind of questions which you should be asking yourself, as a laboratory, as you try to decide where you are ISO 17025 compliant.
This will give pointers to where you need to make changes. It cannot be emphasized too strongly that there are no standard ways of achieving compliance; rather there are hundreds of approaches to complying with any particular requirement. You need to focus on the requirement itself and to find the most convenient and cost-effective way to meet it in your particular situation.
A well managed quality system should pay for itself by reducing the amount of re-testing or re-calibration a laboratory needs to do and by improving its clients’ confidence and hence its success as a business.
