IFM offers a range of services aimed at improving quality assurance within your laboratory. This consulting service is offered either on your premises or IFM’s, and can also be as simple as an informal chat.

Our training programs include formal evaluation of performance after training at the completion of the program. Such training is customised to the needs of the client, and can be simply practical, or include documentation and be examinable.
AUDITS TO ISO/IEC 17025 (Cert. 3189-01) / PREPARATION FOR AN ACCREDITATION ASSESSMENT
Internal auditing is a requirement of ISO/IEC 17025 (Cert. 3189-01). Many organizations find having an annual second party audit a very worthwhile exercise, especially prior to a formal assessment. Depending on your requirements, we can perform a quality system documentation review, assessment of laboratory practice, or both.
If you are planning to go for accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 (Cert. 3189-01), IFM can help you prepare for your assessment and thereby reduce the time taken to gain accreditation. This work can be carried out in person or remotely using a series of personalised webinars and remote assessment exercises
