In metrology (the science of measurement), traceability is widely defined as the ‘property of a measurement result whereby the result can be related to a reference through a documented unbroken chain of calibrations, each contributing to the measurement uncertainty’.
Labs use reference equipment or standards to calibrate samples or items. This helps them realise the traceability of their results.
Both reference equipment and standards are usually traceable to a national standard.
Do you need a clear plan to achieve traceability in your laboratory?
Are you struggling to meet NATA’s requirements for metrological traceability?
Refresh your knowledge and develop appropriate strategies for ensuring your test results comply with requirements by attending this workshop.
Lab staff will learn to evaluate if calibrations and reference materials are traceable and respond to NATA’s requirements.
