Say Au Revoir To That Hunk Of Metal In France That Has Defined The Kilogram


For All Times, For All Peoples: How Replacing the Kilogram Empowers Industry
Two unusual things happened on Nov. 16, 2018. Fifty-five nations from every continent (except Antarctica) agreed on something, and metrology, the science of measurement, was major news! On that day in Versailles, France, the world’s measurement experts voted to do something momentous. They passed a resolution that specifies the exact values for seven fundamental constants of physics and, in the process, they made it possible for anyone, anywhere to make precise, accurate measurements using the International System of Units (SI), popularly known as the metric system.

ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is applicable to all organizations performing laboratory activities, regardless of the number of personnel.
LM-19 Implementation of a Delayed Dating Approach to Calibration
This guide details how calibration laboratory managers can implement a delayed dating approach to calibration activation. This approach is based on the probability that Measurement and Test Equipment will remain in tolerance under controlled conditions prior to activation and deployment in the field. This process lowers the cost of operations and can improve availability of equipment and reduce stock-out events and is also a strategy to load level the workload resulting in minimization of turnaround times at calibrations facilities.
