Uncertainty of Measurement and Decision Rule as per ISO/IEC 17025:2017

Uncertainty of Measurement and Decision Rule as per ISO/IEC 17025:2017

Description of the course:

As per ISO/IEC 17025:2017, when a statement of conformity to a specification or standard is provided, the laboratory shall document the decision rule employed, taking into account the level of risk (such as false accept and false reject and statistical assumptions) associated with the decision rule employed, and apply the decision rule taking into consideration of Uncertainty of measurement.

The training program would cover the basic principles of uncertainty measurement and their specific application in various measurements impacting Decision Rule.

 The following topics would be covered:

  • Concept of measurement and accuracy & precision
  • Understanding on the measurement uncertainty & its need.
  • Interpretation of Measurement Uncertainty
  • The concept and step-by-step methodology of estimation of uncertainty;
  • Overall guidance on how to select appropriate decision rules;
  • “Risk” associated with a decision rule
  • Decision rule in reports covering statements of conformity
  • Individual / Syndicate exercises
  • Comprehensive case studies 
  • Questions & Answers and Summing-up
