Hello! A slight segue from this topic: We are an SQF certified facility and we DO calibrate our scales annually. But my question is, do we need to calibrated our scale tare weights annually? The last place I worked for was BRC certified and they only calibrated the scales but I have noticed that the facility I now work for has been calibrating theirs. We only have the one (which we have sent of for third party calibration testing) which affects our normal practice of calibrating the scales we use daily because we now don't have one in house (I am requesting to have a second one as a back up/replacement). I was reading CFR as well as the SQF code and it doesn't specifically state it anywhere that we need to calibrate what we use to calibrate the scales, just that we need to calibrate scales annually to a nationally recognized standard and have records. Any guidance would be much appreciated!
