1 October 2015 (Thursday) - UKAS Standards

The Boss circulated the standards under which the lab will be inspected over the next few weeks.

Now I know it’s not my place to have an opinion, but what is a reflective journal for if not to reflect…. Over the last twenty years labs have done their level best, then once every five years they have an epic herculean effort to achieve accreditation standard. Everyone knows this is not maintainable in the long run, and in five years time they knacker themselves again for when the inspector calls.

Surely it would make sense to have standards which reflect on how the actual job is done, not on in which colour ink a trivial piece of paper is printed, and having set achievable standards then have unannounced inspections?
