That does the trick: Preparation for accreditation as a calibration laboratory in accordance with ISO 17025

Conforming to international standards combined with reproduceable measurement results and extensive documentation of test procedure is becoming more important for our local and international business customers. Regular calibration of testing materials is very often a requirement. For this reason, we have decided to become an accredited calibration laboratory in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025. The final preparations are in full swing – these are exciting times!

What is an accredited calibration (DAkkS calibration)?

Calibration means identifying and documenting the deviations of a measuring device value to a traceable, precise standard. The measurement value of a measuring device is compared with the known value of a standard under determined reference conditions and reproduceable measurement procedures. Calibration is not interference with the measuring device; it remains unaltered.

The "Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH" (DAkkS) is the national accreditation body of the Federal Republic of Germany responsible for the evaluation, accreditation and inspection of test and calibration laboratories in accordance with DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025. The standard requires the laboratory to demonstrate technical and specialist competency as well as its quality management system. DAkkS calibration certificates can only be issued to the accredited calibration laboratory through the measurement values described in the QM handbook and published by the DAkkS. A high quality level is guaranteed due to regular external assessment and reaccreditation, and is primarily achieved by traceable standards, defined environmental conditions, measurement procedures and highly qualified staff.

The high process and personnel efforts lead to highly accurate measurement results. An additional advantage of accredited calibration is global recognition of the DAkkS calibration certificate. It is attributable to multilateral agreements on mutual recognition of accreditation systems, decided upon by the European Cooperation For Accreditation (EA) umbrella organisation together with the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC).
