Virtual training to ensure the validity of test results (quality assurance) according to the standard 17025 edition 2017, examines the requirements for ensuring the validity of the results. The laboratory should monitor its performance by comparing it with the results of other laboratories (which are available and appropriate). This operation must be planned and reviewed. Monitoring activity data should be analyzed and, if possible, used to improve laboratory activities and for control. If the results of data analysis of monitoring activities are outside the predefined criteria, appropriate measures should be taken to prevent the reporting of inaccurate results.
The laboratory must have an executive method for monitoring the validity of the results. The data obtained should be recorded in such a way that their process is recognizable. When practical, statistical techniques should be used to evaluate the results. This monitoring should be reviewed and redesigned and should include, but is not limited to:
Use of reference materials or quality control materials
Use alternative tools that are calibrated to provide traceable results.
Check the performance of test and measurement equipment
Apply work or control standards with control charts, which are applicable
Intermediate inspection of measuring equipment
Repeat tests or calibrations
Calibration or retesting of stored items
Correlation between results related to different characteristics of a pen
Review the reported results
In vitro comparisons
Testing blind samples
