The Quality Assurance Manager should document calibrations and maintain records pertaining to calibration, repeatability, and reproductibility of data on QP1170-1 CALIBRATION RECORD. Each ISO Calibration Record Template should include, at a minimum, a unique equipment identifier (e.g., equipment name and ID), calibration date, calibration method, standard used, condition of equipment as received, any adjustments or repairs required, calibration measurement data, and identification of the person or company performing the calibration.
Typically, a calibration sticker – listing the calibration date, expiration date, instrument identification number, and initials of the person calibrating or mark of the calibrating company – is attached to the calibrated equipment. If it is impractical to attach the calibration sticker directly to the device, it should be attached to the device container or in the immediate vicinity of (e.g., kept in the same drawer/cabinet) where the equipment is kept.
It is the responsibility of everyone using measuring and test equipment to alert the Quality Assurance Manager in the event of accidental damage or any irregularity between calibrations. The Quality Assurance Manager should ensure the validity of previous measuring results against QP1170-1 CALIBRATION RECORD. Where possible, monitoring and measuring equipment must be protected from any adjustment that might invalidate the calibration and, hence, invalidate any result.
