On-site peer review of EIM QMS

Project Description

The rules of the CIPM-MRA require that the NMIs implement and operate a Quality Management System (QMS) complying with ISO/IEC 17 025 to support their calibration activities. The project intends to support the validation of the QMS of EIM using a peer review performed by a quality expert of a EURAMET NMI. It will fulfill the requirements of the CIPM and of EURAMET. A peer review is scheduled to June 2012. The results of peer review will be reported to EURAMET TC-Q during annual meeting in 2013.


Final Report 2017-12-19

Peer review was carried out between 27th and 29th of June 2012.
Peer review was performed in accordance with guiding documents for on-site peer reviews within the framework of the CIPM MRA. These are documents of Joint Committee of Regional Metrology Organizations and the BIPM and the EURAMET Guide compiled by the EURAMET TC-Q. Peer review covered all requirements of the Chapter 4 and majority of the requirements of the Chapter 5 of the international standard ISO/IEC 17025. Implementation of calibration methods and checking out of related uncertainty budgets (item 5.4 of the ISO/IEC 17025) were out of the scope of the peer review.
Fifteen findings have been identified and registered during the peer review. Ten of them had a nature of recommendations and other five had been cleared by appropriate corrective actions.
The comprehensive report for the peer review is prepared and is available from the project coordinator on request.
