Calling all Quality Managers out there: Explain your control of Measuring and Monitoring Instruments (Calibration), explicitly how you keep personnel from moving instruments from one location to another, thus the calibration tech is not able to find them when due for calibration. Thanks in advance for your input.

I am not a quality manager but I can tell you our process. The calibration coordinator has a masterlist that identifies each calibrated piece with a #. The list also shows where the piece is "supposed" to be located. When it is recall for cal. time he notifies the supervisor or lead of the particular area, it is their responsibility to keep up/maintain their tools. If they cannot recover them the list is updated to reflect "lost". I should also say we have all of our tools (meaning shop tools) in the calibration program. The ones used for acceptance of product is maintained by Quality in secure cabinets and labs. If a tool leaves one these area's it is signed out on a log and has to be signed back in on return. A quality designee is responsible to make sure this happens.

I moved your thread to the "ISO 17025 - Calibration, Measurement Gages and Test Laboratories" forum where you may receive better information.

Best of luck.

I'm thinking that this is a symptom of not having the right gauges or the right quantity of gauges (measuring equipment if you will) available at the place they're used - hence them being carried off........

Once you have fixed that issue, then they shouldn't 'migrate'.....

aside from attaching the instruments to a solid, heavy, non-movable item (preferably with a short chain) and having legible signs notifying user to NOT MOVE INSTRUMENTS from AREA :whip:. i agree with AndyN to look into increasing the quantity of instruments. more instruments also provides you with back-ups for when an instrument is out for calibration or out for repair.

perhaps a little bit of training is required too to prevent users from moving instruments and thus risking invalidation of any instrument validations (example IQ).

Aside from Andy's good suggestion that perhaps there aren't enough devices, you can put the responsibility on users (or their supervisors). Issue a recall notice and let the people bring the devices to the calibration technician.
