Frequently Asked Questions F.A.Q.

What are the regulations to be followed for the verification of a weighing instrument that is used by a company that operates with a quality system certified according to UNI EN ISO 9001?

A company that operates with a certified Quality System, must check the weighing instruments at their disposal on a periodic basis, the frequency of which is to be determined at the discretion of the company in accordance with the quality inspector and depending on the use to which the instrument is intended.

If the weighing instrument is crucial to the productive activity of the company and is used with high frequency, the periodicity of verification may even be monthly or half-yearly, but if the weighing instrument is used sporadically, and for marginal activities within the company, inspections will be more dilated in time, for example every 24 – 36 months.

The verification can be done using certified sample weights traceable to national samples following a proper documented procedure. LAUMAS is equipped with a worldwide network of service centres able to perform calibration reports in accordance with UNI EN ISO 9001.
