The latest edition of the ISO 17025 International Standard was published on the 30 November 2017. There is a 36-month transition period, ending on 30 November 2020, when all laboratories accredited to the 2005 edition of the International Standard must transition to the 2017 edition. The 2005 edition will not be valid after 30 November 2020, and any laboratories which are not accredited to the current edition will have their accreditation withdrawn by their respective accrediting body.
As a result of the changes made to the ISO 17025 International Standard it will be necessary to make some changes to the documents that make up your quality management system. The changes that need to be made will depend on the contents of your current quality management system.
To identify the changes that need to be made we recommend an onsite gap analysis that will examine the current status of your quality management system against the requirements of the 2017 edition of the ISO 17025 International Standard, and provide a list of recommendations of changes required to achieve conformance with the current edition.

The gap analysis will examine your documented quality management to identify the gaps in conforming to the current edition of the ISO 17025 International Standard
Gap analysis report, which identifies the documents that need to be created. This is the deliverable of the project.
