CALA is always seeking highly motivated experts to assess the conformance of laboratories to the international standard ISO/IEC 17025. Assessors are key to the success of the accreditation program, and are the people on the front-line who are gathering evidence on-site to demonstrate that a laboratory is conforming to the international standard ISO/IEC 17025. Assessors may work by themselves or on a team; regardless, it’s a rewarding role to know that you contributed to the accreditation process and ultimately — the health, safety and welfare of all Canadians.
