Calibration Requirements for Companies

October 6, 2011


Calibration Requirements for Companies:

Control of monitoring and measuring equipment (calibration) is a requirement of clause 7.6 of ISO 9001:2008.

The calibration is relevant where the equipment is used to measure the quality of the product from receipt to final inspection.

While most companies have implemented this clause of the standard for meeting their own calibration requirements, there are some companies that have their own labs and offer calibration as a service.

TouchBase product of ProductDossier has a module that caters to the requirements of both types of requirements given above.

Requirements of the ISO 9001:2008 standard

  • Calibration is to be done at specified intervals
  • Measurement standards to be traceable to National or International measurements standards
  • The equipment should have adequate identification to determine its calibration status
  • It should be safeguarded from adjustments and protected from damage

Key features of the Touchbase module

  • Equipment master which gives all details of the equipment
  • History card for each piece of equipment
