A regular check of your 'heartbeat' with traceable calibration equipment ensures your quality always matches the customer's expectations, which is vital where ISO 9000 certification is involved. Regular calibration lets you:
- Assure consistent quality of your production output
- Lower operating cost due to enhanced reliability
- Gain optimal access to international markets
- Establish a quality system
- Address quality audit and reviews
- Maintain quality of specifications
- Meet production control criteria
- Measure inspection and testing results
- Establish calibration traceability
ISO 9000: Traceable Calibration
'Calibration' means that the test results from a measuring device (or source) of unknown accuracy, are compared with a device whose accuracy is known. This device is universally accepted as a 'reference'. Calibrations are traceable to the International System of Units (SI) through National Metrological Institutes, ratiometric techniques and natural physical constants.
Calibration records any deviation from this standard and corrects it when necessary. Each instrument has a specific calibration procedure which indicates exactly how and what must be checked. Regular and traceable calibration combines the forces of accuracy and certainty and provides you with the key aspect of ISO 9000 registration.
