Hello Everyone,
Is the Ionizer can be calibrated or perform preventive maintenance when in use? How about if we declared this ionizer to be not in use? How can we depend this situation in our external auditor? Please advice.

Thanks in advance.

You can declare ANY instrument or equipment to be WORKING EQUIPMENT and not requiring calibration. It should be identified as such with a label. You can buy standard labels that say "Working Equipment" or "Not in Calibraiton System" or similar. As long as it is properly identified you will not have a problem. That is as long as you can clearly demonstrate that the instrument/equipment IS NOT used to measure or verify any specification or tolerance on your product or within your process that could affect the quality of your product or process.

See the first sentence in the top paragraph here: http://www.cjsys.net/zero.htm

I recently audited a company that uses iar ionizers as part of their ESD control program. They were not calibrating them. I reviewed the manual, and as I am also trained as an ESD instructor and have calibrated ionizers, I reviewed the manual, and determined that the ionizer needs to be calibrated. If you can be audited on your company's ESD program, I recommend you at least consider calibrating the ionizers.
