Calibration is an essential part of any quality assured system. Without regular calibration the performance of instrumentation cannot be relied upon, and this uncertainty impacts directly on your business. Furthermore, the calibration process itself must meet certain criteria and traceability if it is to be of benefit.

IRC offer the calibration of instrumentation for measuring electrical, high voltage,temperature, humidity, pressure, torque, dimensional metrology and mass. All calibrations are traceable to National Standards and are in accordance with procedures laid down in BS EN ISO/IEC17025:2005. This standard is the most important thing when getting calibration. Many laboratories or "calibration houses" claim to work to the requirements of ISO17025:2005 but are NOT accredited. There is a useful resource found here direct from UKAS outlining that only UKAS Accredited laboratories are credible for your calibration requirements.

As expected IRC Ltd are fully UKAS BS EN ISO/IEC17025:2005 Accredited & have signed up to the ILAC Agreement. Click on the UKAS/ILAC logo below for our latest Schedule of Accreditation
