Re: Producing IATF 16949 compliant calibration certificates

In Reply to Parent Post by Golfman25 View Post

You are going to have a real problem here. In general outside calibration labs must be 17025 certified -- so most customer are looking for the cert with that designation to file away and "show the auditor" when it comes up. Simple.


Your "out" is in the second part of which says: "Calibration services may be performed by the equipment manufacturer when a qualified laboratory is not available for a given piece of equipment. In such cases the organization shall ensure that the requirements listed in Section have been met." is the requirements for internal labs -- scope and such. You'll need to figure out how to get yourself into that exception. Good luck.
The outside calibrator is the manufacturer of the test unit and they are certified to the 17025 lab standard. Their software actually produces page two and three of the certificate package, but page one, the actual cert, needs to be dressed up to Name the calibration lab and place the serials and cal data as I see it.

But other than that we should be OK, right?
