ASTM International has released a new standard practice that provides guidelines for testing and calibration across the lifespan of a balance or scale. This standard practice builds on the base of EURAMET cg-18, but gives clearer descriptions of calibration procedures and contains a section with essential definitions to help the user understand the purpose and execution of a calibration.
Compliance with this standard practice can help businesses achieve the goals of their weighing quality programs and increase profitability while reducing risks. Following the standard can also make suppliers more marketable to their customers who may prefer that their business partners conform to ASTM standards.
As a contributing member of the ASTM subcommittee, METTLER TOLEDO uses industry-leading expertise in the science of weighing to ensure this new standard contributes to a robust weighing quality management program. Our expertise in weighing and calibration as well as our detailed knowledge of the standard makes us the perfect partner to assist in compliance.
