Introduction to ILAC P10 Policy for Traceability of Measurement Results and P14 Policy for Uncertainty in Calibration

Dec. 15, 2020
This course introduces the participants to these two important documents from the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC).  These policy documents are applied by Accreditation Bodies when implementing their accreditation schemes for Calibration and Testing Laboratories. The participants will review the requirements outlined in these documents and discuss recent revisions to these documents and the potential impact to accredited laboratories and their customers.  The presentation will also include a brief introduction to ILAC and explain how the policy documents are developed and how they impact the accreditations schemes offered by ILAC Mutual Recognitions Arrangement signatory accreditation bodies.   

If you’re an accredited lab or interested in understanding the accreditation requirements, this webinar will help you better understand where some of the requirements associated with your Accreditation Body come from and how they fit into the international mutual recognition process.
