Abstract
The greatest common standard for the expertise of testing and calibration laboratories has recently been bring up to date, considering the newest improvements in laboratory environment and work practices. ISO/IEC 17025:2017, General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, is the international reference for laboratories implementing calibration and testing actions through the globe. This article gives a short review on ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and its related data which are increasingly produced every day in the laboratory and suggests Big Data as a fundamental tool of treating such data. ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is gaining a huge part in laboratory legal status and activities; in its side, Big Data is reaching high level of mastery and expansion. On the other hand, there is a huge amount of data around and inside laboratory everyday activities. Besides the experimental and analytical results, there are findings from its financial management. Therefore, Big Data through its enormous capabilities of managing details would imbricate ISO/IEC 17025:2017. The near future would provide more details of how will be the final figure of this intersection.
