Set for release in September 2015, the QMS standard is set to bring about some large-scale changes that will dramatically re-shape the role of the auditor. How will the auditor’s relationship with management change? How will the auditor address the new emphasis on ‘risk based thinking’? And ultimately, how can they still deliver the right information to management when faced with increasing commercial pressures and time constraints?

Gap Analysis: From the CPA Standard to ISO 15189:2012 - Key Changes

In October 2012, the final draft of ISO 15189:2012 was approved. The transition from CPA to UKAS brought about additional requirements needed to ensure your laboratory meets both the technical competence and management system requirements necessary for it to deliver consistent technical valid results.

Each laboratory is advised to perform a Gap Analysis. To make it easy for you, we’ve compiled a simple tick-box spreadsheet which includes all the additional requirements to enable you to assess whether you meet all the requirements and identify any issues arising from the transition.
