International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) published on its website news about the new issue of standard ISO/IEC 17043:2023 Conformity assessment — General requirements for the competence of proficiency testing providers.
At the ILAC General Assembly held in November 2022, a resolution was endorsed which allows a 3-year implementation period from the publication date of this revised standard, i.e. until 31st May 2026, as shown further in the ILAC Resolution GA 26.09.
As the revised version of ISO/IEC 17043 is scheduled for publication in 2022 or early 2023, the General Assembly endorses the recommendation of the AIC that a transition period of 3 years from the date of application be adopted.
The implementation of this transition period for ISO/IEC 17043 by the signatories to the ILAC MRA for the accreditation of proficiency testing providers will be monitored by the ILAC AMC to ensure the deadline is achieved. The process used by the AMC to monitor this implementation of the revised standard will be similar to that used during the performance of ISO/IEC 17025:2017.
