In year 1803 the foots in Europe had a big differences,  depending not only in which country, also every town had its  own size of the foot. The biggest was in Roma, 551 mm, and the smallest in Florence,  221 mm.  2

• The first step to solve this problem was taken  in 1875 when BIPM and the Convention of the  Meter was established. • However it took until 1989 before we got  the  first international standard for calibration  laboratories (ISO 45001 which later was  replaced by ISO 17025). • DID THIS HAVE ANY EFFECT??

Purpose of EA (1) • The European co-operation for Accreditation (EA) is the Association of the national accreditation bodies that provide accreditation for the following conformity assessment activities: – – – – – – –

Calibration Testing Inspection Certification of quality, environmental management systems Certification of products Certification of persons EMAS verifiers

10

Purpose of EA (2) • Provide Europe with an effective, reliable accreditation infrastructure • Develop accreditation criteria and guidelines supporting harmonisation of practices • Operate a sound, robust, reliable peer evaluation process • Ensure equivalence of accreditation and equal reliability of accredited results • Cooperate with the European Commission and other European, international stakeholders

11

The European co-operation for Accreditation (1) • A not-for-profit association registered in the Netherlands in June 2000. • 33 Full Members representing 33 European economies • 19 Contracts of Cooperation signed with non EU / EFTA AB’s (6 ABs covered by the ENP, 5 ABs located in Europe, Russia and 7 ABs located outside Europe) • Out of these contracts, 9 have turned into a bilateral agreement with EA.

Global Vision •

A single worldwide programme of conformity assessment which reduces  risk for business, regulators and the consumer, by ensuring that accredited  services can be relied upon.



Government and Regulators relying on the IAF and ILAC Arrangements to  further develop or enhance trade agreements. 



To support the freedom of world trade by eliminating technical barriers,  realising the free‐trade goal of ‘tested, inspected or certified once and  accepted everywhere' .

Assessment The assessment consist of 2 parts •Assessment of the quality system. This is made  by the national board of accreditation. •Technical assessment. This is made by an  assessor with technical experience. The  technical assessor is checking methods of  calibration, inspect the calibration rigs and  measuring equipment, examine the uncertainty  budget and intercomparison results.

18

Assessment of the competence of the  staff who is performing calibration • This is made by interviewing  operators of  testrigs and technical leaders. • Sometimes also  written examination are in  use. • Finally one or two of the operators are  witnessed by the assessor during  a  calibration. This can be made together with an   intercomparison 19

In ISO 17011, documented test‐ and  calibration intercomparisons are required, as  evidence for accreditation.  • The accredistion body also shall check that the  accredited lab regurlary takes part in  intercomparisons, when such are avaliable. • No choice! 20

www.intercomparison.org • Interlaboratory comparisons (ILC) or proficiency testing  (PT) are common means of determining the testing  performance of a laboratory. Proficiency testing is used by  accreditation bodies to assess the technical competence of  a laboratory and also by companies to ascertain the quality  of measurement equipment and performance. • CFI, Centre for Intercomparison, covers a wide range of  measurement quantities, such as: • Electrical ‐ Flow ‐ Force ‐ Length ‐ Mass ‐ Optical – • Pressure ‐ Temperature ‐ Torque ‐ Vacuum ‐ Volume 21
