Measuring and test equipment by WA Pecktel Engineering used for Tests, Inspection and
Quality Control activities are registered, identified by means of suitable stickers, etc, and
controlled. The equipment is calibrated and checked at specified intervals in accordance
with Regulatory requirements and / or equipment manuals to ensure that measurements
uncertainty is known and is consistent with the required measurement capability.
When test equipment is used on loan basis or provided by the customer, its calibration
records / certificates are reviewed for suitability prior to use.
Each item of measuring and test equipment is permanently marked with an individual serial
number and, where practicable, labeled to indicate calibration status and date.
Corresponding records are kept for each item of measuring and test equipment which
stipulate the calibration frequencies and tolerances and record the checking and calibration
Calibration equipment identification numbers, etc. must be shown on the test certificates /
Inspection reports made with the use of this equipment.
In-house calibration is carried out in accordance with written instructions by trained
personnel using reference standards in a known state of calibration and traceable to national
/ international standards. Calibrations are carried out in suitable environmental conditions.
When items of measuring and test equipment are calibrated by an external source, dated
Certificates are supplied containing details of any rectification carried out and the
identification of reference standard used.
Any equipment found to be defective or overdue for calibration is withdrawn from use. The
results of the previous measurements made with that equipment since its last calibration
are assessed by Specialist Engineers and corrective action is identified when considered
Measuring and test equipment is handled and stored in a manner suitable to preserve its
Accuracy and fitness use.
