 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.


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

Witness a historic moment; join an open session of the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM)
The 26th General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) will take place in Versailles on November 16, 2018. At this meeting, we expect the CGPM to approve a resolution to revise the definitions of the International System of Units, the SI, which is based on the second, the metre, the kilogram, the ampere, the kelvin, the mole and the candela (the SI base units).

Scientist to Vote on Metric Makeover
On 16th November 2018, measurement scientists from more than 60 countries will come together to witness the vote on the redefinition of the International System of Units (SI), changing the world's definition of the kilogram, the ampere, the kelvin and the mole.
