However some of the organizations represented were not yet implementing quality management systems, hence it was advised that they develop these systems first and progressively carry out the audits. A practical audit of the ISO 17025 management System at the Central Veterinary Laboratory (CVL) was carried out on the 11th of June 2015 and the participants gained insight into how a management system is implemented in a laboratory. Most of the participants were amazed at how well developed and documented the Management system was at CVL. The training was beneficial to all participants as they learnt the need to constantly evaluate their systems in order to bring continual improvement measures into their respective organizations.
