Abstract: Following the revision of the ISO/IEC 17025; 2005 standard to the new ISO/IEC 17025; 2017 standard by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO), it became necessary that staff of the accredited laboratories and supporting units of the CSIR-Food Research Institute be trained on the new requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. In light of this development, the training was aimed at giving participants who were staff of accredited laboratories and supporting staff the necessary information on the major changes in the new standard, training on the requirements of the new standard and suggestions as to how to implement these changes to enable them fully implement these requirements in their various divisions and sections in preparedness for the next SANAS surveillance visit slated for February 2020. Per the ISO timelines, when a new standard is published, it must be implemented within three years from the date of publication. The training of 30 participants was conducted over a three day period on the 21st, 23rd and 24th of January, 2019. Facilitators for the training were Mr. Ebenezer Tawiah, Mr. Vincent Kyei Baffour and Mrs. Anthonia Andoh-Odoom. The training schedule was presided over by Prof. Charles Tortoe, Deputy Director of the CSIR- Food Research Institute
