Register of the monitoring and measuring equipment

#1
Recent AS9100D certificate suspension and need guidance.
2 Questions regarding AS9100D 7.1.5.2 Measurement Traceability

1.
"The organization shall maintain a register of the monitoring and measuring equipment."
Would "for reference only" monitoring and measuring equipment be required to be included in such a list?

2.
Also, does monitoring and measuring equipment for which "traceability is NOT a requirement" and that is not deemed to be "an essential part of providing confidence in the validity of measurement results" have to be identified at all?

7.1.5.2 When measurement traceability is a requirement, or is considered by the organization to be an essential part of providing confidence in the validity of measurement results....

The items we have tagged " for reference only" or "device not calibrated" are not in our Calibration control list. BUT every item has some kind of tag on it.

If the item you are questioning is used in any way in the process of final verification or non final intermittent verification activities then it must be calibrated, and should be. If there is a decision made during the process using a device of any kind in order to verify the process parameters for the next operation then it really becomes a traceable item. We have a hardness tester in the shop that we use for an intermittent hardness test but not the final hardness test. All are calibrated and documented.

I have taken this approach for 15 years and never had a problem. I just make sure EVERYTHING has a tag of some sort on it and I can thoroughly explain the need to not have it calibrated or validated.

Could you give us a couple examples of the items you are questioning perhaps?

Hi Randall, thanks for the quick reply.

An example would be a pressure transducer uses in a piece of equipment that measures a reference parameter that is not considered key or critical to the output of the process.

In most instance like this the measured values are not formally reacted to. Note these processes are many decade old and do not have control plans.
