On-site visit by external technical experts in the field of ionising radiation (radionuclide activity)

Project Description

All the NMIs and DIs participating CIPM MRA have to operate a QMS in conformity with ISO/IEC 17025 to support their measurement and calibration activities. This project of QMS peer visit and review is intended to support evaluation of QMS of the Ionising Radiation Metrology Laboratory (IRML) in VMT/FTMC, and provides a tool for a better international recognition and fulfilment of the requirements of CIPM MRA. The goal of the project is to review the measurement capabilities of the IRML in VMT/FTMC, including the declared measurement uncertainty in radionuclide activity measurements; detect, analyse and resolve possible metrological problems of the laboratory and also learning from each other and sharing the best practice for QMS implementation. The peer-review visit of CMI experts is planned in June 2014.

Final Report 2015-04-13

The Quality Management System (QMS) of IRML (FTMC, Lithuania) was peer reviewd by J. Sochorova and S. Hoffmanova (CMI, Czech Republic) between 18-19 June 2014.
This was a first review to verify that the calibration services offered by IRML comply with requirements of its documented procedures and the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Standard.
The peer review findings were documented in a report issued on 14 November, 2014. The actions plan initiated in response to the recommendations from the peer review was made within Metrology Department - head laboratory and QM attended in March, 2015.
The peer review was very useful and helped to continual improvement of our services to our customers.
