Should an OEM - Original Equipment Manufacture of a measurement device be required to have an ISO/ ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Certificte of Accreditation if you utilize them to calibrate there own equipment?

Re: OEM Calibration of Equipment

According to TS16949:2009 Section 7.6.3.2 External Laboratory. Note 2 When a qualified laboratory is not abvailable for a goven piece of equipment, calbration sevices may be perforned by the equipment manufacturer. In such cases, the organization should ensure that the requirements listed in 7.6.3.1 have been met.

Are you asking in terms of ISO/TS 16949? It's not required, per se, in other QMS standards. If the OEM is the only source for calibration, then it very much depends on what they are prepared to do for you. There are some OEMs who will thumb their nose at accreditation of their labs...

Andy - TS16494 is the applicable specification...so ddonben's answer worked for me!

If there's a qualified (i.e., accredited) lab that can perform the calibration, it's not OK to use the manufacturer's non-accredited lab.

OK..so here is the next part...How does an organization "ensure that the requirements listed in 7.6.3.1 have been met" (the second part of Note 2)

Good question. As much as it's not always good to answer a question with another question, you have the answer already. How do you ensure any supplier meets requirements?

Jim: I do not believe that that is a correct interpretation of the requirement. If the OEM is available to perform the calibration service, and they meet the rest of the requirements as far as 7.6.3.1 (procedures, training, traceability are the big ones) then there is no clearly identified requirement that a 17025 lab be used. An auditor could (possibly) write this as an OFI, but not as a nonconformance.
