NML extends ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation on the calibration of electronic balances: conducts inter-comparison measurement in Germany

Two of National Metrology Laboratory’s Mass Standards Section staff, Kiveen Suycano and Aries Ordoña, attended a five-day training on the European Association of National Metrology Institutes calibration guide – 18 (EURAMET cg-18): Guidelines on the Calibration of Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments (NAWI) at Zentrum für Messen und Kalibrieren GmbH (ZMK) in Wolfen, Germany last June 1-5, 2015 to support the laboratory’s accreditation under the Deutschen Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS), the national accreditation body of Germany.   The training course focused on the theoretical and practical aspects of the EURAMET cg-18 and included enrichment topics on measurement uncertainty based on JCGM 100: 2008 and EA-04/02: 2013 with specific application to the calibration of NAWI. As evidence of technical competency, comparison measurement in the field of weighing instrument calibration between NML and ZMK was carried out.   ZMK is a very reputable DAkkS accredited laboratory in several measurement fields. Having both ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO/IEC 17043 accreditations, ZMK is highly competent to carry out technical trainings and inter-comparison measurements.   The said training was sponsored by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the national metrology institute of Germany.
