Meeting Overview:

The Washington/Oregon Section 1431, would like to invite you to our Spring section meeting on June 14th at the Mitutoyo Showroom in Renton, WA. Our theme is closely tied to the International Symposium; Measurements of Tomorrow. We wish to demonstrate the changing metrology landscape by highlighting new measurement methods, metrology lab paradigm shifts, redefinition of standards, etc.
This is a great opportunity to "fine tune" your demonstrations before the International Workshop and Symposium in August and/or present your work to a local audience.
An exhibitor display table provides a great opportunity for lab and test people to see the latest/greatest test and measurement equipment offered by your organization. Demonstrations of your equipment offer an opportunity for Test Instrumentation manufacturers to get their instrumentation in front of test equipment users and have them use them to perform measurements. NCSLI uses these opportunities to help offset the cost of the meetings, exhibitor tables cost $300 and include one admission to the meeting. If your organization wishes to support the NCSLI Washington/Oregon Section at a sponsorship level, your demonstration table will be located in a prime location in our meeting room. Additionally, your company logo will feature prominently as an NCSLI sponsor on our website and communications to our Section Members. The cost to sponsor this event is $1500 and will include three admissions into the event.

Topic: The New ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Standard

Speaker: Helga Alexander, International Accreditation Service

The new ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard was released on November 30, 2017. Calibration and testing laboratories currently accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard must transition to the new version of the standard by December 1, 2020. This presentation will highlight some of the changes in requirements in order to help labs prepare for the transition. Particular emphasis is placed on the requirements for risk-based-thinking, impartiality, the process approach, and the management system and its documentation.
Learning Objectives:
The audience will become aware of the most important changes in the new standard.
