Calibration Certificate Evaluation

Purpose:

This two-hour webinar will introduce concepts necessary to successfully implement ISO/IEC 17025 compliant calibration certificates within the laboratory and evaluate service provider certificates for compliance.

At the end of this 2-hour session, using notes and reference materials, participants will be able to: 

  • IDENTIFY ISO/IEC 17025 or NIST HB 143 criteria related to the evaluation of calibration certificates (Sections 4.6 and 5.10);
  • DESCRIBE common nonconformities that can occur when reporting measurement results, including SI unit and symbol errors;
  • EMPLOY template job aids, checklists and other tools that can be used to successfully complete a calibration certificate review; 
  • ANALYZE “real world” certificate examples to discover nonconformities and propose appropriate corrective, preventive, and improvement actions.
