Preparing for the audit, and follow up, can be stressful and time consuming. A modern automated calibration management system can help you ensure that you are always ready for an audit.
The importance of Calibration
“Calibration, as part of an overall measurement management process, reduces the risks associated with measurements (such as form, fit and function), regulatory requirements and international acceptability.” –Quality Progress
Regardless of the industry, the calibration and maintenance of process instruments are crucial for the organisation as they are related not only to productivity and effectiveness but also to health and safety issues. For this reason, the rules are strict and the penalties expensive if you can’t prove that you have followed them.
