Standardization in Thermal Analysis
Today, standardization in thermal analysis is carried out by many national and international organizations, such as ISO, ASTM, DIN and CEN. Such standards help to establish quality and other criteria between countries, which improves international trade. Certified Norms and Standards also facilitate communication and cooperation between laboratories and other bodies without the need for further testing.
Standardization in thermal analysis
In 1965, the first International Conference on Thermal Analysis (ICTA) established a Committee on Standardization to promote the consistent reporting of accurate and reproducible data. Standards are pertinent to many industries using thermal analysis techniques such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetry (TGA), thermomechanical analysis (TMA) or dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA). As these vary widely in their mode of operation and sample environments, reported results must include the necessary experimental information so as to enable meaningful comparisons between results from different instruments and laboratories.
Validation in Thermal Analysis Webinar
This webinar discusses standardization and the use of recognized Standards in the context of equipment qualification and system- and method validation.
Many more thermal analysis webinar topics are ready to be viewed.
The "Validation in Thermal Analysis" handbook is intended for beginners and specialists interested in the theoretical, practical and regulatory aspects of validation; it covers the various Standards employed for equipment qualification (EQ), software validation and method validation.
