    FAQ

    The recalibration period is defined by national rules or by company policy. Typically it’s one or two years.
    The reference standard can be calibrated by any recognized body or metrological institute.

    Please note that there is a difference between recalibration and readjustment.

    An adjustment becomes necessary once the reference standard accuracy is out of the specified class. The adjustment can be done locally. There is no need to sent the instrument back to us.

    The reference standard CL3115 is by default delivered with a company calibration certificate. It can also be delivered with a calibration certificate issued by an ILAC accredited laboratory on additional cost.
