First calibration laboratory with accreditation for transmission filters

esz AG calibration & metrology received accreditation for the calibration of transmission filters in the measured variables transmission, turbidity level and turbidity coefficient.

These parameters are used in the calibration of turbidity filters. Turbidity filters serve as test equipment for the calibration of exhaust gas measuring devices that are used in the exhaust gas analysis of vehicles according to number 6.8.2 of Appendix VIIIa of the StVZO.

The calibration specialist from Eichenau once again underlines its pioneering role, because esz AG is the first calibration laboratory in Germany to be accredited for transmission / turbidity filters in these parameters. The accredited calibrations for turbidity filters are now available.

esz AG receives accreditation for climate chambers

esz AG calibration & metrology is now accredited for the calibration of climate chambers for the measurands temperature and humidity. The official notification includes calibration in the esz laboratories and on-site.

In March 2020, the DAkkS (German Accreditation Service GmbH) had completed and certified the accreditation process for esz AG to convert to the new laboratory standard DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2018. The accreditation also included changes in the high-end area, for the use of the Josephson quantum calibrator, as well as for direct and alternating current strength and resistance. In addition, numerous changes and contradictions resulting from the 2017 re-accreditation process were resolved and corrected. Now esz AG calibration & metrology is accredited for the calibration of climate chambers.

It took three years for esz AG to receive the DAkkS notification. Before that, numerous negotiations, mediations, comparative measurements and bureaucratic obstacles had to be taken. "We are delighted that Mr. Rosner and his thermometry team have consistently hung in there and convinced with competence and expertise," said esz board member Philip M. Fleischmann.

The new DAkkS certificate and annex (list of services) can be found on the esz website at www.esz-ag.de/kalibrierung/dkd-labor.html.

World Accreditation Day 2020

June 9th 2020 marks World Accreditation Day (#WAD2020), a global initiative established by ILAC and IAF to promote the value of accreditation.

This year’s theme focuses on how accreditation improves food safety, supporting the confidence of consumers, suppliers, purchasers, regulators and specifiers in the quality and safety of food.

A joint statement released by the Chairs of IAF and ILAC introduces the importance of accreditation in food safety, noting how it ensures competent and impartial inspection, certification and testing services in all parts of local, national and international food chains. In doing so, accreditation supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly Good Health and Well-being (SDG 3).

IAF and ILAC have produced a brochure and poster to highlight worldwide examples of the role accreditation plays in food safety. Further examples and research are available on the Public Sector Assurance and Business Benefits websites. A video is also available on the IAF/ILAC YouTube channel.

esz AG accredited according to the new DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025:2018

The DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025 always stands out in the jungle of standards. It contains requirements for laboratories to demonstrate that they work competently and achieve valid results. The standard was developed to promote trust in the work of laboratories. In March 2018 a revised version of DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025 was published. esz AG had already implemented their guidelines in its QM system in many ways. For example, esz AG has long offered various decision rules for conformity statements and attaches particular importance to data integrity, data security, data protection and confidentiality with its own software platform calibration expert. Even before the new standard was introduced, esz was accredited according to DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2005. The DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH) has now completed and certified the accreditation process for esz AG to convert to the new laboratory standard DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025:2018. The new accreditation also includes changes in the high-end area, for the use of the Josephson quantum calibrator, as well as for direct and alternating current strength and resistance. In addition, numerous changes and contradictions resulting from the 2017 re-accreditation process were resolved and corrected.

You can find the certificate here.

esz assigns device ID 300,000

esz AG registers the 300,000th device with its calibration expert calibration expert software.

October 17, 2019 seemed to be normal working day at esz. But then this one number did appear on a screen in the lab: 300,000 ... not Euro, but registered devices with the calibration expert software. At 10.14 a.m. the time had come: an esz measuring technician pasted the DAkkS test seal with the ID number 300.000-01 on a PXI vector signal analyzer of the company National Instruments. The module is thus the 300,000th device detected within the software calibration expert. The software application supports calibration technicians, engineers and metrologists in the calibration and creation, as well as the handling of calibration certificates.

"With the launch of calibration expert in 2009 esz AG calibration & metrology took a significant step towards process automation in the calibration laboratory. The laboratory management becomes considerably faster, easier and more efficient with the specially developed software solution, "explains esz board member Philip Fleischmann.

esz AG conducts around 60,000 calibrations annually. No wonder then that the PXI vector signal analyzer with the ID number 300,000 is already on its way back to its owner when writing this article. Philip Fleischmann looks ahead and promises: "The awarding of the esz-ID number 500,000 will then be celebrated all at esz."
