Dear All,

Does anyone have a reference which state that annual calibration of reference measuring device (eg. thermometer, pressure gauge) is a mandatory?

Thank you for sharing

Dear avila muncar,

 

The calibration interval logically depends on the device, eg via risk assessment. Various examples exist on this forum.

 

However, I daresay you can find specific, published, recommendations for the maximum calibration interval of certain devices, eg by manufacturers.
