Events Calendar

Eurachem Workshop - Uncertainty from sampling and analysis for accredited laboratories
From Tuesday 19 November 2019
To Wednesday 20 November 2019

Measurement uncertainty evaluation for sampling and analysis in the context of ISO/IEC 17025:2017


The workshop will help laboratory managers and staff concerned with

  • designing and implementing sampling protocols to ensure acceptable levels of uncertainty in results and conclusions
  • developing and maintaining field or laboratory procedures for measurement uncertainty evaluation and reporting to meet the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2017
  • reporting measurement uncertainty in conformity assessment decisions under ISO/IEC 17025:2017
