Abstract: The aim of this guidance document is to facilitate harmonised flexible scope accreditation within Europe, according to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 related to quantitative testing of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) for GM events authorised in the EU or which are in the authorisation process. This document gives guidance to and is intended for laboratories that are considering to acquire a flexible scope of accreditation according to ISO/IEC 17025. At the same time it aims to provide information for assessors involved in the accreditation process of these laboratories. This guidance document has been written by members of the Task Force (TF) Flexible scope accreditation, which has been initiated by European Commission, Joint Research Centre, Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (EC JRC-IRMM, Geel, BE). After an extensive commenting phase it has been submitted to the European co-operation for Accreditation (EA) in February 2013 for consideration as an EA guidance document.
