Uncertainties for Dry Block Calibrators

July 21-22, 2020 - Dry blocks or dry wells are commonly used instruments to provide a stable and uniform temperature source for temperature calibration. In addition to being a temperature source, dry wells are sometimes used as the temperature standard for the calibration. Regardless of how the dry well is being used, it is critical to understand the errors and uncertainties associated with the use of the dry well. This training will focus on the various types of uncertainties and the methods used to determine the uncertainty contributions when using a dry well. Sample uncertainties budgets will also be shown and explained.

An Introduction to the ILAC Policy (P Series) and Guidance (G Series) Documents (A Peek Behind the Accreditation Body Curtain)

Sept. 1-2, 2020 - This course introduces you to many of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) Policy Documents (P Series) that Accreditation Bodies apply to Accredited Calibration and Testing Laboratories as part of the ILAC Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA). The participants will review a variety of policies including ILAC P8 Guidelines for the Use of Accreditation Symbols and for Claims of Accredited Status by Accredited Laboratories, P9 for Participation in Proficiency Testing Activities, P10 for Traceability of Measurement Results, and P14 for Uncertainty in Calibration.

Overview of the Decision Rule – ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Requirements and Examples of Implementation

June 25 and July 2, 2020 - It has been more than two years since the 2017 revision of ISO/IEC 17025 went into effect. One of the more significant changes in the standard are several requirements associated with the decision rule, which is defined in ISO/IEC 17025:2017 as a “rule that describes how measurement uncertainty is accounted for when stating conformity with a specified requirement.” Many calibration and testing laboratories still wrestle with implementation of these requirements. This 2-part webinar will discuss various aspects of the decision rule.
