CloudLIMS’ New Document Management Module for ISO/IEC 17025 Accreditation
CloudLIMS has released a Document Management Module for its Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), CloudLIMS. The Document Module is for food and beverage, cannabis, water, and soil testing laboratories, enabling them to meet ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation requirements. The module helps laboratories manage, and track documented processes as part of ISO 17025, and provide access to these documents to laboratory personnel.
ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is the international standard for accreditation of testing laboratories to assure quality. It requires all the laboratories to support the internal and external documents, and make them available to designated personnel. Additionally, it enables the laboratory to exercise version control over all documents, in order to avoid using invalid or obsolete documents. With CloudLIMS' document module, a laboratory can track, store, and share all the documents from a central location. Version control of documents provides a full audit trail enabling the laboratories to manage and track the history of revised documents for internal and external auditing and reporting. Key benefits of the document module include:
- Manage and track documents in any format (PDF, MS Word, images)
- Version control for full audit trail and historical record for traceability
- Track version history of revised documents for internal and external auditing and reporting
- Associate documents with tests for technicians to refer the standard test processes while conducting tests
