What is Calibration

  • Calibration is an activity of checking, by comparison with a standard, the accuracy of a measuring instrument. It may also include adjustment of the instrument to bring it back in to manufactures spec.

What is the difference between Traceable Calibration and UKAS calibration?

  • UKAS – Accreditation by UKAS means that evaluators: testing and calibration laboratories, inspection and certification bodies have been assessed against internationally recognised standards to demonstrate their competence, impartiality and performance capability.
  • Traceable - Traceability calibration makes sure the unit is within the factory specifications and is sufficient for many instruments. The instruments we use for calibration are calibrated to UKAS and the relevant standards, therefore ensuring this traceability.
