On behalf of Eurachem Georgia, Georgian Laboratory Association (GeLab) is delighted to invite the interested parties to the
SCIENTIFIC WORKSHOP IN CONNECTION WITH EURACHEM GENERAL ASSEMBLY
(16 - 18 MAY, 2022)
QUALITY ASSURANCE CHALLENGES OF MEASUREMENTS FROM FIELD TO LABORATORY
WITH A FOCUS ON ISO/IEC 17025:2017 REQUIREMENTS
Eurachem is a network of organisations in Europe having the objective of establishing a system for the international traceability of chemical measurements and the promotion of good quality practices.
This workshop will be of direct relevance to anyone who is focused on the quality of analytical measurements and the reliability of decisions based on test results in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025 requirements, taking into account the influence of factors that exist outside the laboratory environment. Such factors are mainly related to sampling or on-site measurements, and occur in the daily life of laboratories operating in many different fields such as food and beverages, health, environment, forensics, pharmaceuticals, etc.
The workshop will address current practices, challenges, and future recommendations on quality assurance of physicochemical and microbiological measurement methods and their validation, including sampling-related issues.
In addition to hearing presentations from Eurachem and local experts, participants will have the opportunity to discuss topics in detail and exchange experiences during breakout sessions.
The workshop will be of interest to: laboratory staff; technical and quality managers; representatives of accreditation bodies, metrology institutes and standardization bodies; technical assessors; customers of laboratories; PhD students and those involved with education and training in relation to analytical measurements.
The working languages of the Scientific Workshop are: English and Georgian (simultaneous interpretation will be arranged during the workshop).
