Internal Calibration Laboratory Inspection/Approval

#1
Hi,

We are in the process of setting up an internal lab to handle our own inventory (Electrical, Temperature, Pressure, Torque, Mass etc.). As an airline we are EASA 145 approved, however the calibration lab falls outside of the EASA scope.

Our quality department want some sort of inspection/approval by a 3rd party however we do not want to go down the route of 17025 or obtaining a ISO approval.

Does anyone know of any organisations that can come in and do a review of the lab and its operations?

Thanks.

Absent an accrediting body, you best chance is a well qualified assessor who will do freelance as they have the credibility, or a consultant. Since you are in Doha, the Qatari authorities can also issue their own approval, which would be valid within Qatar and maybe all the UAE.

Hope this helps.

Hi Slytrellis,

May I know the update on your lab? Is it accredited under ISO17025? Is it compulsory for in-house calibration under EASA Part 145 to be ISO17025 certified?
