This 2 hour webinar introduces the Laboratory Management Review process, an important tool to foster communication between top management and laboratory personnel to improve laboratory operations to produce quality calibrations and highly satisfied customers.
At the end of (or during) this session, using your notes and ISO/IEC 17025 and/or NIST HB 143, you will:
- 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
- APPLY the management review and process to laboratory scenarios.
Note: Course learning objectives may be amended based on the update of ISO/IEC 17025 (minor impact anticipated), which is estimated to occur in Fall 2017.
