ISO/IEC General requirements for the competence of for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, and I would like. We should let ISO be guidance for the users of measuring equipment and let ISO G25//Z be for the calibration labs. ISO/IEC and the relevant requirements for calibration and testing uncertainties of measurement, to calibrate measuring and test equipment, to.

Note 3 to entry: The requires a comprehensive 100122-1 analysis for all calibrations under the philosophy that traceability of a measurement cannot 10012- established without knowing the expanded uncertainty.

Note 2 to entry: An organization, for example, could have a quality management systems that is certified to ISO Discussion related to the importance and timing of equipment dalibration. The validity of the test and calibration results is controlled through internal quality methods. The methods used for the measurement management system range from basic equipment verification to the application of statistical techniques in caljbration measurement process control.

It defines requirements relevant to the measurement management system in language that may illustrate interrelations to other parts of an overall quality management system. This traceability is established through the laboratory standards in an unbroken chain of calibrations through appropriate calirbation standards and may be made through national measurement standards.

Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. Confidentiality of Customer Information Both standards require documented policies and procedures to ensure the confidentiality of customer information. However, whereas the Z does not specifically address electronic storage and transmission of customer data, requires documented procedures and policies to protect the confidentiality of such electronic data.

The client and the laboratory must agree upon the appropriate method of calibration.

Note 5 to entry: Internal Audits Procedures for internal audits and review are part of the quality manual requirements of Z And detailed records must be maintained through the entire process. Qualification for a specific task shall be based on demonstration of the required skills, education, training, and experience. Management shall formulate goals for training, education, and skills.


A list of the minimum elements of the review is outlined.


Calibration Due Dates The is more stringent than the Z on the placement of calibration due dates on calibration certificates and calibration labels. ISO is a guidance document and not intended for certification.

Calibration and Testing Services. Note 4 to entry: The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical committees.

It specifies the quality management requirements of a measurement management system that can be used by an organization performing measurements as part of the overall management system, and to ensure metrological requirements are met.

Guidance appears in italic typeface within a box after the appropriate requirement paragraph. If the customer requires calibration services only, either standard may be applicable, though only the meets international requirements.

Laboratories and their customers therefore need to consider four different situations in deciding which standard to apply. We have outlined only some of the differences in these two standards.

For dated references, only the edition cited applies. The states that traceability shall be assured by the use of competent laboratories that demonstrate measurement capability and calibrxtion. Probability and general statistical terms. One major point is the requirement that laboratories maintain records of original observations with sufficient information to establish an audit trail.

From the scope of ISO The competence referred to in the calobration of the standard relates 1001-1 the competence of the entire system — not just training of personnel. Thehowever, requires internal audits to cover all the elements of the quality system and that they be planned under the quality manager according to a predetermined schedule.

The philosophy of the is focused on providing competent measurement services with results that are traceable to appropriate standards.


Only the covers both calibration isp testing services. Metrological confirmation is not achieved until and unless the fitness of the measuring equipment for the intended use has been demonstrated and documented. The review is to determine the adequacy and effectiveness of the system.

ISO – Wikipedia

These bodies may be independent or part of a larger organization. Measurement Traceability The Z requires traceability of measurements to national standards, international standards, or intrinsic standards that have been compared to other intrinsic standards, particularly those of national labs. In summary, ISO is a guidance document that addresses one caalibration namely management of a measurement system of a quality management system.

In the remainder of this article, we outline some of the importance differences between the two major standards. The laboratory and the client must fully understand and agree on the calibration or testing services provided.

Difference Between ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 10012

Managing the Measurement SystemQuality Progress. Any laboratories seeking accreditation will be assessed to The focuses on the competency calibratin the legally responsible bodies providing test and calibration services.

To view the full content, you will need to purchase the standard by clicking on the “Buy” button. The requirements of these records are specifically outlined.

The states that calibration lab managers shall ensure that personnel are competent to perform tests and calibrations. Document Control The Z includes a general statement about documentation control that is arguably ambiguous.

Client or Customer Service Requests The Z calibartion not require procedures for contract, request, or tender review. Intermediate measures of the precision of a standard measurement method. Department of Defense requirements. Denise Robitaille Vice Chair, U. I am updating the instrumentation section of a product fabrication specification to replace a cancelled military specification MIL-STD that specified calibration systems requirements.
