Frequently Asked Questions FAQs

My company is ISO 9001 certified and I use a scale for my production. What should I do to manage it according to the standard?

In this case, the weighing instruments must be calibrated on a periodic basis that is established by the company in agreement with the Quality Inspector, also depending on the intended use.

If the instrument plays a fundamental role in the company production process and the frequency of its use is high, the checks can be monthly or half-yearly.

If, on the other hand, the instrument is used for marginal activities and with low frequency, the checks may be more extended over time, for example every 24 - 36 months.

The verification is carried out using calibrated sample weights, referable to national or international samples.
