Recommendations on Balance Sensitivity, Eccentricity and Repeatability Testing

Testing your balance too much or not enough?

According to ISO 9001, I have to calibrate and verify my balance at specified intervals. But the standard makes no statement on how this should be done or how often. Good Weighing Practice™ (GWP®) provides me with a recommendation on testing, based on my specific needs, meeting my internal requirements as well as ISO9001.

"The GWP recommendation also contains all relevant information about test weights and SOPs. So, I am sure to do the right thing." (Mrs. G. Nielsson, Quality Control Manager, Ice Cream)

Systematic balance testing minimizes risks and reduces costs. With the right SOP's testing is a piece of cake.


Free Standard Operating Procedures consist testing information (for lab microbalance, analytical or precision balance) on different topics:

  • Sensitivity
  • Repeatability
  • Eccentricity
