This 2 hour webinar will introduce the management review process, an important tool used by laboratories to foster communication between top management and laboratory personnel and to improve laboratory operations to produce quality calibrations and highly satisfied customers.

- IDENTIFY management review criteria (Section 4.15) in ISO/IEC 17025 or NIST HB 143 and your laboratory quality manual and related procedures;
- LIST the personnel that should participate in a management review;
- LIST the 11 elements that are typically discussed during a management review;
- SELECT sources of objective evidence that are used during a management review;
- DISCUSS the value and benefits of management reviews; and
