Although method validation and method verification are interchangeable terms, they have distinguishing analytical and statistical requirements, especially for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025:2017. It is a significant advantage for food testing laboratories to obtain ISO 17025 certification not only bolsters a laboratory’s reputation, but also demonstrates an organization’s commitment to quality, operational efficiency and management practices. This webinar will provide a detailed and simple explanation between method validation and method verification together with the requirements of each analytical approach to comply with ISO/IEC Standard 17025:2017 for microbiology laboratory accreditation.
In this 45 minute webinar, participants will gain valuable insight into:
- The major differences between method validation and method verification.
- The performance characteristics for method validation and requirements for method verification.
- Introduction to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 for qualitative methods from a technical perspective.
