CEQMAS develops Quality Assurance
Systems according to different standards such as :
- ISO 9000 for the certification of Companies, Works or laboratories,
- ISO 17025 for the accreditation of Laboratories.
is an important concept in Quality Assurance, according to which a measuring equipment should be tested
against a standard of higher accuracy, such as the type of hierarchical relationship
Calibrations need thus
to be performed on a planned, periodic and identified basis with special attention
Standard, accurate to e. g. 0.002%,
Laboratory, acurate to e. g. 0.01 %,
- Company "Master"
Item, accurate to e. g. 0.05 %,
- Company Production
Equipment, accurate to e. g. 1 %,
Product, accurate to e. g. 5 %.
- the specific standards used,
involves to demonstrate an unbroken
chain of comparisons that ends at the agency responsible for maintaining and
developing a country's measurement standards (now generically known as a National Metrology Institute).
CEQMAS may evaluate
an existing System or perform preauditing or outsourced internal audit with
specific priority given to Traceability.
