The Manufacturing Department should maintain a Calibration Record Template for each piece of testing and measurement equipment under the calibration program. After calibration, the date of calibration and the next due date of calibration should be recorded on the MFG103-1 CALIBRATION RECORD. The actual calibration reading and any adjustments and/or repairs to the tool or instrument should be recorded.
The Manufacturing Calibration Record should be placed in a 12 month tickler file in the month proceeding the next recall due date. The cards in the section of the file for the current month are pulled and all of the equipment listed is calibrated. For example, in a six (6) month calibration cycle, when an instrument is calibrated in May, the card is moved from the May section to the October section of the file. When the file is checked in October, the cycle card will be there to remind that calibration is due. The process is repeated until an event such as instrument wear-out occurs and the respective cycle card is removed from the file.
