1.0      PURPOSE

This procedure has been prepared to provide a uniform management process for the calibration of
test equipment (hereinafter referred to as equipment). The procedure is to form an integral part of
the quality assurance system.


2.0      SCOPE

The instructions contained in this procedure cover those equipment items used by the Technical
Services Group and are to follow AS/ISO 17025 „General requirements for the competence of
testing and calibration laboratories‟


3.0      REFERENCES

Reference is made to accreditation requirements. The following statements highlight the need for
the procedures in this procedure.

     The testing services shall have, and maintain in good working order, all measuring instruments,
      reference standards, reference materials and ancillary equipment required to undertake the
      testing.

     All testing equipment having an effect on accuracy shall be calibrated in terms of national
      standards of measurement and calibration documents shall be retained in association with the
      equipment register.

     It is preferred to have all measurements be derived from a single source of authority,
      maintained by the CSIRO Division of Applied Physics (DAP). In practice, this means that
      calibrations of all reference equipment must be undertaken by CSIRO DAP or by a calibration
      service holding an appropriate accreditation (where measurements consequently are traceable
      to CSIRO DAP). Calibrations must be to an appropriate level of accuracy which is normally at
      least a factor of three and preferably a factor of five higher than the desired accuracy of use.

     The laboratory shall have a mechanism that alerts management when calibrations and
      subsidiary checks fall due and indicates the nature of the work required.

The procedures may only be carried out in an appropriate environment using trained personnel and
with equipment having a traceable calibration history.

Procedures and equipment compliance data have been taken from:

     Complete National/International standards;

     Sections of a National/International standard;

Where repairs have been affected on equipment, a recalibration may be needed. All repairs must
be noted on the appropriate form in the calibration file.

Certain items in the Calibrated Equipment Store, Technical Services, which have not been used
during their last calibration period, may have the period extended by an equivalent time. If such a
situation arises for more than three consecutive periods, a calibration shall be undertaken.

5.5      Acceptance, Registration and Calibration of Laboratory Test Equipment

5.5.1 On receipt of the equipment, a covering work request and a copy of the order, plus any
      other relevant information the responsible officer shall register the receipt of the
      equipment.

5.5.2    Notify the relevant Group Manager, if items cannot be cleared for payment within 30 days
         of receipt at Walkley Heights, giving the reason.

5.5.3    For items requiring acceptance only, check the equipment against the order and/or
         specification and clear for payment by the relevant Group Manager.

5.5.4    For existing equipment not requiring purchase, payment and registration calibration shall
         be carried out.

5.5.5    Allocation of an identification number and the creation of a Calibration File are carried out
         as follows:

          Calibration identification number - using the “Calibration Schedule New Numbers” folder,
           turn to the specific group number for that item (e.g. 167/_ _ _ _ for thermometers) and
           allocate the next identification number to the item. If there is no specific group number,
           then on a proforma page allocate the next specific group number and proceed as before.

          Before the calibration of a piece of equipment, the calibration is to be recorded in a
           calibration register and given the next unique calibration ID number. Registers are
           located either in the asphalt lab office area for laboratory calibrations (section 04) or
           M:\Calibrations\CALIBRATION REGISTER for field testing calibrations (section 05). A
           sticker of due date for next calibration is applied to the piece of equipment and the wall
           chart is updated.

5.5.6    Label the piece of equipment with the specific identification number.

5.5.7    For items that are unacceptable, report this information to the person responsible for the
         equipment.

5.5.8    Items found to be conforming to the appropriate standard or test method, a calibration file
         is generated comprising the following items:
