Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone knew if NELAP was equivalent to ISO 17025?

 

We currently use a water testing facility that is NELAP certified but SQF edition 8 states outside lab contractors must be ISO 17025.

 

Thanks!

NO!

 

SQF does not say it must be 17025.

 

2.5.4.3 "Where external laboratories are utilized to conduct input or product analysis, the laboratories shall be accredited to ISO 17025 or an equivalent national standard, and shall be included on the site's contract service specifications register (refer to 2.3.3.1)."

 

Yes, your NELAP is considered eqvl
