Contracting Calibration Services

Description: This technical bulletin was developed to help owners of measuring equipment reduce risk and optimize their expenses in calibration. All measuring equipment requires calibration; however, there are many different types of calibrations which can lead to false assumptions and missed expectations. All too often, the end-user is either wasting money on unnecessary calibration, or worse, they are exposing their organization to unforeseen quality risks. This is especially true when contracting external calibration services. This bulletin provides recommended language when contracting calibration services and a ten-point checklist to follow.

What is Calibration?

Description: Requirements for calibration appear in most national and international quality standards, and most organizations recognize that measuring equipment must be calibrated. However, there is much confusion regarding the definition of calibration, and this confusion increases quality-related risks to organizations. The purpose of this technical bulletin is to sort out all the different concepts that exist for the term calibration, including official definitions and those in common use. The primary technical basis for this document is ASME B89.7.1-2016, Guidelines for Addressing Measurement Uncertainty, which is one of the few documents that has tried to sort out the calibration conundrum.

Decision Rules, TAR and TUR

Description: This technical bulletin addresses how measurement accuracy and uncertainty can be accounted for when making statements of conformity to specified requirements (In/Out tolerances or Pass/Fail decisions.) In particular, this technical bulletin explores one simple rule called the simple acceptance and refjection decision rule, which is the most commonly used decision rule in measurement practice. The technical basis for this document is the American national standard (ANSI standard) ASME B89.7.3.1-2001 Guidelines for Decision Rules, along with other historical documents.
