Frequently Asked Questions

What is calibration?

Calibration is the activity of checking the comparison between a customer’s instrumentation and a standard. It may also include adjusting the instrument to align it with the standard. The comparison information (results) is then reported on a calibration certificate.

What are the main reasons for calibration?

The main reasons for calibration are to ensure the reliability and trustworthiness of the instrument, to determine its accuracy, and to ensure the readings are consistent with other measurements.

What is the difference between a UKAS (17025:2017 approved) and a Standard (Traceable) calibration/certification?

A UKAS calibration can also be considered traceable. The difference between the two is that UKAS calibrations are carried out under the remit of an ISO/IEC 17025 quality system by a laboratory that UKAS has accredited to ensure the consistency and accuracy of results.

What is your calibration turnround?

Our standard turnround for providing calibration is 5 working days.

Do you provide a calibration price list?

We don’t provide a specific calibration price list as there are many variations of equipment and tests. However, if you can provide us with a list of equipment, we will gladly provide a competitive quotation.
