When a measuring instrument is being calibrated, the given deviation is determined by various measurements versus standard references. A calibration certificate is then issued indicating the measuring results and the corresponding measurement uncertainties and the instrument is marked as calibrated. All documents together with the calibration certificate provide traceability of national standards.
As technology is becoming more complex today, the verification and documentation of quality are becoming more demanded as well. The quality of measuring instruments has always been asked for high standard and it therefore provides a good reason why calibration is a must in certain cases.
The DAkkS/DKD-calibration laboratories are among industrial companies, research institutes, technical authorities and inspection and testing institutes and all of which are accredited and monitored by the German accreditation body. These laboratories are authorized to perform calibration services on measuring instruments and material measures according to the officially defined procedures and measuring ranges. The DAkkS/DKD-calibration certificates are issued by these laboratories as a proof of traceability of national standards as required by DIN EN ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.
Bareiss as an official DAkkS/DKD-calibration laboratory can perform calibration services on a wide range of material testing instruments on-premises and in the field and issue the official calibration certificates for them.
