7.6 c) c) Have Identification in order to determine Calibration Status

Getting our calibration up to scratch.

7.6 says, where necessary to ensure valid results, measuring equipment shall .... c) have identification in order to determine its calibration status.

I'm assuming this is means identification on the item of equipment itself is required, such as a sticker, and that that a record accessible to the staff that use it of when the next calibration is due is not good enough. Is that right?

Currently we rely on records only to meet the requirement of 7.6 c.

We have some small items such as microphones and transducers on which its impractical to put stickers on without interfering with its purpose so I'm wondering how to deal with this. Ideas?

thanks

kgott,

Ask yourself how the user of the measuring equipment can ascertain its calibration status before using it.

You may set this up so the form or database electronically warns of impending calibration due dates and will not accept data from a measuring device of uncertain or overdue status.

Or, you may color-code the measuring devices and their replacements so the device users know which color device they should be using on a particular day, week, month, quarter; depending on the cal frequency.

Or, the device may be verified before each use against a calibrated measurement standard.

Relying on robust controls so that only devices that are calibrated are available for use may also work provided the users know enough about these controls to be certain of the device's cal status.

The test is "how does the user know the cal status?".

I'm assuming this is means identification on the item of equipment itself is required,[somashekar] Yes. such as a sticker, [somashekar] No, Even the equipment unique serial number can be its identification, provided you use the same in its calibration records to determine its calibration status. and that that a record accessible to the staff that use it of when the next calibration is due is not good enough. Is that right?

Currently we rely on records only to meet the requirement of 7.6 c.

We have some small items such as microphones and transducers [somashekar] These are sensors and are not in itself monitoring and measuring devices. The device that measures can be identified combining the sensors. on which its impractical to put stickers on without interfering with its purpose so I'm wondering how to deal with this. Ideas?
