ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Transition Period

The ILAC Arrangement Management Committee (AMC) is responsible for monitoring the implementation of the transition period of ISO/IEC 17025:2017. The members of the ILAC AMC have reviewed the reports received from the regional cooperation bodies detailing the progress of the accreditation bodies in their region in completing the transition of the accredited laboratories to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 by 30 November 2020. The AMC recommends that the end of the transition period be extended from 30 November 2020 to 1 June 2021 to ensure all laboratories are able to be transitioned under the restrictions imposed as a result of the global coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak. The final decision will be announced in June 2020.
