On-site peer review of MIKES-Aalto

Project Description

Aalto University, Metrology Research Institute (Aalto) is a designated institute for photometry and radiometry in Finland. In this project, the QMS of Aalto will be peer-reviewed. The peer review on spectrophotometry services will be carried out by an expert from NIST (USA). The expert manages and conducts reflectance calibrations for stakeholders in government, industry, and academia and carries out research on reflectance and scattering of optical materials. The on-site visit is scheduled for the beginning of November 2022.

The review will include relevant requirements for the competence stated in ISO/IEC 17025 and the spectrophotometry services included in CMCs of the institute.
