The FSMS Calibration Record Template should be used by the Quality Assurance Department to document calibrations and maintain records pertaining to calibration, repeatability, and reproducibility of data. Each FS1140-1 CALIBRATION RECORD should include, at a minimum, a unique equipment identifier (e.g., equipment name and ID), calibration date, method, standards used, condition of equipment as received, any adjustments or repairs required, calibration measurement data, and identification of the person performing the calibration. The Quality Assurance Department should retain calibration records for the period required by law. Calibration records should be maintained in a secure file or database (use FS1140-2 CALIBRATION DATABASE as a guide).
It is the responsibility of everyone using the measuring and test equipment to alert the Quality Assurance Department in the event of accidental damage or any irregularities between calibrations. Where possible, monitoring and measuring equipment is protected from any adjustments which would invalidate the calibration setting by placing the calibration sticker or a dot of tamper paint where disturbance of the sticker or paint would indicate tampering. Where test software is used as a form of inspection or testing, it will be checked to prove it is capable of performing the required verification of product acceptability. It will be rechecked at prescribed intervals. Records of the initial check and scheduled rechecks will be maintained in the Food Safety Calibration Record.
