It is time we act and put some teeth in few of the lax processes currently in practice that are painfully diluting the otherwise well defined, well detailed time honored principles of Accreditation etched all over the Globe. Having been involved in a few of these operations, it set me thinking how come there is no real supervision and none to go to if issues that run against its grain go abegging without ever seeing the light of the day. I thought there had to be a way out of all this. I sat down to open up my Dead Sea Scrolls of years past and began to scribble down gnawing,obvious weaknesses I had noticed in some past assessments- this litle work was born only after that painful review.I hope if taken in the sense intended it may very well deliver on its intended goal and help achieve the compliance we all are after. Everybody understands the basics of ISO 17025, base document around which this book revolves, it is only in its implementation the ball is dropped somewhere halfway or close to the goal. Some values are too absolute to be compromised and that is where extreme caution is desired. This little easy to read piece may help point out where caution is needed and where we can make a difference- we need to treat this exercise more from the standpoint of public safety than as just another job.It carries enormous responsibility. People depend upon us.
