Information showing a compliant calibration certificate according to Pharmacopoeia Helvetica
First, a compliant calibration certificate should have an accreditation logo and an accreditation number that are clearly indicated. The laboratory that did the calibration should also leave their address on the certificate, and if the calibration was done on-site, evidence of where it was done should also be present.
If by any chance, the calibration was done in a foreign laboratory, the ILAC logo together with the local accreditation mark ought to be specified to ensure that it is the equivalent of SCS.
Next, the calibration certificate should be identified clearly without much strain. Additionally, the measuring chain should be visibly clear and be identified with a serial number.
Adding onto that, it is a standard requirement that the contact information and the customer’s name be shown on the document. If by any chance that this information is not there, ELPRO recommends that this decision is documented in a risk assessment.
The proof of the traceability to the standards of calibration by the lab that did the calibration should also be included in the certificate. If the calibration certificate is an ISO 17025, traceability is also ensured by the accreditation authority.
