What is defined as a laboratory? We do titration in a lab to the find the acidity of a chemical. Does this mean that 4.10.6 applies? We can easily perform the titration outside a lab too.
We calibrate thermometers using the comparison method. A std thermocouple and the thermocouple for calibration are both used to measure the heater block temp. The results are compared. This is done at room temp and humidity. Is this acceptable?

Laboratory is not a place bound by four walls, but a place where testing is performed. If titration is performed outside the four walls of the place called "laboratory", the place where titration is doen becomes the laboratory as per QS9000 definition.

Calibrating a thermocouple or thermometer using a standard thermocouple is acceptable, as long as "traceability to national or international standards" is maintained. Necessary systems to ensure that the said calibration is done corretcly must be documented.
