All measuring and test equipment purchased shall be calibrated independent of the manufacturers or suppliers certification.

Adequacy of Measurement Standards Measurement standards are traceable and have the accuracy, stability, range, and resolution required for its intended use. 5.2.1 AccuracyUnless otherwise stated by the customer, the collective uncertainty of the measurement standards does not exceed twenty five percent (25%) of the acceptable tolerance for each characteristic being calibrated. Deviation The uncertainty requirements described in Paragraph 5.2.1 may be deviated. Deviation required documented statistical studies to ensure that the overall adequacy of the calibration is not adversely affected. The deviation is documented and maintained as part of the gage file. Classification of Measurement Equipment If at any time the classification or length deviation of any Gage Blocks (Level 2) used for the purpose of In-House Calibration falls below the maximum permitted deviations of length per ASME B89.1.9.2002. The gage blocks will not be used for In House calibration of equipment. They will be identified as Reference Only and a new set acquired.

5.2.3

5.3

Environmental Controls To ensure continued measurements of required accuracy, measurement standards are maintained and utilized for the purposes of device calibration in a clean and secure environment where the temperature is maintained between 65 and 78 degrees F. Calibration environment temperature shall be verified by use of a calibrated thermometer/hygrometer before in-house calibration activity and recorded in the inventory record and recall system entry for the device to be calibrated. Since &TE must be stored and utilized in the ambient temperature of the production facility, in extreme conditions it may be necessary to place the M&TE into the calibration environment 24 hours in advance of calibration to ensure normalization. This should not normally be a requirement for common hand held measuring equipment. Intervals of Calibration M&TE used to accept product is calibrated at least annually. The frequency of calibration is based on usage, environment, and calibration history. Intervals may be shortened as required to assure continued accuracy as evidenced by the results of previous calibrations. Intervals may be lengthened only when the results of previous calibrations provide definite indications that such actions do not adversely affect the accuracy of the system. 5.4.1 Guidelines for M&TE interval adjustmentAny decision to extend or decrease intervals must lie with the technician, who is familiar with all aspects of the device and its use. However, as a guideline consider the following: 5.4.1.1 Extension of intervalIf, for example, a device is calibrated on a monthly cycle, and four cycles have passed with no adjustment required, that device may be considered for extension to quarterly. 5.4.1.2 Decrease of interval When a specific device is found to be out of adjustment for two consecutive cycles, the interval may be shortened to 1/12 of the maximum interval until the extension rules of 5.4.1.1 above allow extension.

5.5

Recall System A recall system is utilized to ensure mandatory and timely recall of all M&TE and measurement standards for re-calibration, ensuring that instruments are not used beyond the calibration due date. In those cases where the recalled instrument is essential to the manufacturing operation and calibration of the device would seriously affect critical schedule, the Quality Assurance Manager may review the past history and capability of the instrument and determine if production may continue using that instrument. This extension must be short term and in no case exceed 25% of the normal calibration cycle of the device. Calibration Procedures Procedures are provided and utilized for the calibration of all M&TE and measurement standards. 5.6.1 Minimum Requirement As a minimum the procedures specify the following: 5.6.1.1 Measurement Standards and equipment to be used (manufacturer and model or generic description). 5.6.1.2 The required standard 5.6.1.3 The accuracy of the Measurement Standard 5.6.1.4 The acceptable tolerance of each characteristic being calibrated 5.6.1.5 Specific instructions to enable the calibration personnel to adequately calibrate each instrument characteristic or measurement parameter of concern. 5.6.1.6 The number of points to be checked for each instrument and reference to the accuracy required and the range to be checked. Procedure Format and/or Source Procedures prepared in house are in the format of Quality Department Operation Instructions and meet the requirements. However, procedure available from the customer, DOD or other U.S. Government agencies, in manufacturers manuals, or published standard practices may be used provided they conform to this procedure and all contractual requirements. When no recognized standard exist for calibration procedure, measuring and test equipment shall be calibrated in accordance with manufactures recommendations and/or nationally recognized standard or practice.

Significant Out-of-Tolerance Condition When any M&TE, addressed by this procedure, is found to be outside of the normal tolerance or cannot be calibrated, calibration personnel will remove the device from service and identify the status of the device in the inventory record and recall system to indicate condition. The Quality Technician performs a formal investigation and assessment and determines the appropriate action with regard to material that the device may have accepted in error. If it is determined that suspect material may have shipped to the customer, the customer is contacted regarding recall or possible customer MRB disposition of the suspect product. [Reference the reporting requirements of QP 8.3 (Control of Nonconforming Productl)]. Disposition of out of tolerance devices shall be the responsibility of the Quality Technician, unless otherwise directed by the Quality Assurance Manager.
