quote-iconGood course balance - this will certainly help me with internal audits.~ SIRA


Quality Management System Standards such as ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and ISO/IEC 17025 require the establishment of an effective system for the control of inspection and measuring equipment.

Delivered In-house, this interactive and practical workshop will provide the latest information, knowledge and skills for identifying the elements of an effective calibration system; understanding the requirements for those supplying calibration services; preparing for compliance and improving and utilising measurement data focusing on continuous improvement and cost reduction.

Course Objectives

Our workshop is designed to provide delegates with the skills necessary to establish systems for the control of inspection and measuring equipment whilst considering their practicality and cost effectiveness. They will learn to develop and document a calibration and measurement assurance programme and assess measurement capabilities.

Key Skills / Learning Objectives

Through the combination of interactive tutorials and workshops, our course will enable the delegates to:

  • Develop a structured documented calibration system, including the process for identifying what needs calibrating, frequency and by whom.
  • Identify requirements for and maintenance of calibration records.
  • Identify opportunities for improved quality of data and optimize the calibration processes.

Course Outline

  • Calibration concepts: traceability, capability, reliability, uncertainty, repeatability and reproducibility
  • Quality and calibration system documentation and record requirements (ISO 10012, 9001 and GAMP)
  • What to calibrate
  • Validation of software used in measurement
  • Optimization of calibration intervals, calibration status and recall
  • Environmental controls and equipment handling
  • Out of tolerance conditions
  • Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty and Measurement Systems Analysis
  • Use of external laboratories and purchasing specifications
  • Other resources/sources of information

Who Should Attend?

  • Those who manage, utilise or control calibration systems
  • Quality Managers and Engineers
  • Department Managers
  • Calibration Managers and Technicians
  • Assessors of calibration systems

Although not essential, personnel attending this course should have a basic knowledge of maths and statistical techniques. Participants should bring a calculator with them which has basic statistical functions.
