Please Help! In-House Calibration Facility Requirements - Setting up a new in-house laboratory

Dear Covers,

At present we are calibrating our instruments at external agencies.

Now we wanted to set up the in-house calibration laboratory.

I am interested to know about :

What are the basic infrastructures that should be taken care (including the compliance part during the audits) for setting up the small in-house calibration laboratory which would be helpful to calibrate the in-house equipments (like temperature sensors, transmitters, pressure gauges etc.)

Regards / Raghu

Raghu, might I direct you to this thread:

http://elsmar.com/Forums/showthread.php?t=34257

In it, Coury has provided a 17025 that will provide a great checklist for you. That includes procedural, technical, and environmental conditions for performing calibrations in-house.

In general, be sure to count all the costs involved. There is a lot that goes into performing calibrations, and providing an acceptable environment.

You might also check www.ncsli.org and find the Recommended Practices (RPs). One of them is specific to how to set up a laboratory.
