Correct and reliable measurements are the prerequisites for any high-quality industrial production. Measuring and testing equipment is used, among other things, for the quantitative determination of properties as well as for controlling, regulating and automating production. Measurements are therefore an important part of industrial quality assurance, see also DIN EN ISO 9000 and 9001.
All equipment used for measurements, including equipment for auxiliary measurements, e.g. for ambient conditions, and having a significant influence on the accuracy and validity of the result of the test or sampling, must be calibrated before it is put into operation.
