Foreword (OIML)
The International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML) is a worldwide, intergovernmental organization
whose primary aim is to harmonize the regulations and metrological controls applied by the national
metrological services, or related organizations, of its Member States. The main categories of OIML publications
􀂃 International Recommendations (OIML R), which are model regulations that establish the
metrological characteristics required of certain measuring instruments and which specify methods and
equipment for checking their conformity. OIML Member States shall implement these
Recommendations to the greatest possible extent;
􀂃 International Documents (OIML D), which are informative in nature and which are intended to
harmonize and improve work in the field of legal metrology;
􀂃 International Guides (OIML G), which are also informative in nature and which are intended to give
guidelines for the application of certain requirements to legal metrology; and
􀂃 International Basic Publications (OIML B), which define the operating rules of the various OIML
structures and systems.
OIML Draft Recommendations, Documents and Guides are developed by Technical Committees or
Subcommittees which comprise representatives from the Member States. Certain international and regional
institutions also participate on a consultation basis. Cooperative agreements have been established between the
OIML and certain institutions, such as ISO and the IEC, with the objective of avoiding contradictory
requirements. Consequently, manufacturers and users of measuring instruments, test laboratories, etc. may
simultaneously apply OIML publications and those of other institutions.
International Recommendations, Documents, Guides and Basic Publications are published in English (E) and
translated into French (F) and are subject to periodic revision.
Additionally, the OIML publishes or participates in the publication of Vocabularies (OIML V) and periodically
commissions legal metrology experts to write Expert Reports (OIML E). Expert Reports are intended to
provide information and advice, and are written solely from the viewpoint of their author, without the
involvement of a Technical Committee or Subcommittee, nor that of the CIML. Thus, they do not necessarily
represent the views of the OIML.
This publication – reference ILAC-G24 / OIML D 10, Edition 2007 – was developed by the ILAC Accreditation
Committee and by OIML TC 4 Measurement standards and calibration and verification devices. This version
supersedes OIML D 10 (Edition 1984). It was approved for final publication by ILAC in November 2005 and by
the International Committee of Legal Metrology in 2002.

Guidelines for the determination of
calibration intervals of measuring instruments
This Guidance Document is a revision of OIML D 10. It was drafted by ILAC (International
Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation) and the OIML (International Organization of Legal
Metrology) as a joint venture and is published as such.
It is important to point out that:
• It is not the responsibility of accreditation bodies to teach laboratories how to run their
• It is the responsibility of each individual laboratory to choose to implement any or none of the
methods described in this Document based on its individual needs and its individual
assessment of risks.
• It is also the responsibility of the laboratory to evaluate the effectiveness of the method it
chooses to implement and take responsibility for the consequences of the decisions taken as a
result of the method chosen.
The purpose of this Document is to give laboratories, particularly while setting up their calibration
system, guidance on how to determine calibration intervals. This Document identifies and describes
the methods that are available and known for the evaluation of calibration intervals.
This publication was developed by the OIML and ILAC as a joint venture and as a revision of OIML
D 10. Within ILAC the focal point has been the Accreditation Committee.
1. Introduction
An important aspect for maintaining the capability of a laboratory to produce traceable and reliable
measurement results is a determination of the maximum period that should be permitted between
successive calibrations (recalibrations) of the reference or working standards and measuring
instruments used. Various international standards take this aspect into account, e.g.:
ISO/IEC 17025:2005 [1] contains the following requirements:
Clause 5.5.2: “Calibration programs shall be established for key quantities or values of the
instruments where these properties have a significant effect on the results”.
Clause 5.5.8: “Whenever practicable, all equipment under the control of the laboratory and
requiring calibration shall be labeled, coded, or otherwise identified to
indicate the status of calibration, including the data when last calibrated and
the date or expiration criteria when recalibration is due”.
Clause 5.6.1 “All equipment used for tests and/or calibrations, including equipment for
subsidiary measurements (e.g. for environmental conditions) having a
significant effect on the accuracy or validity of the result of the test,
calibration or sampling shall be calibrated before being put into service. The
ILAC-G24:2007 / OIML D 10:2007 (E)
laboratory shall have an established program and procedure for the
calibration of its equipment.”
Note: Such a program should include a system for selecting, using, calibrating,
checking, controlling and maintaining measurement standards, reference
materials used as measurement standards, and measuring and test equipment
used to perform tests and calibrations.
ISO 9001:2000 [10] contains the requirement:
Clause 7.6: “Where necessary to ensure valid results, measuring equipment shall:
a) be calibrated or verified at specified intervals, or prior to use, against
measurement standards traceable to international or national measurement
standards; where no such standards exist, the basis used for calibration or
verification shall be recorded”.
Note: This Document focuses on the determination of calibration intervals of measuring
instruments. The methods described can also be used in an appropriate manner for reference
standards, working standards, etc., which are under the control of the laboratory.
In line with the terminology of the VIM [11], the term “measuring instrument” is used instead of
“measuring equipment” in this Document.
The general purpose of a periodic calibration is:
• to improve the estimation of the deviation between a reference value and the value obtained using a
measuring instrument, and the uncertainty in this deviation, at the time the instrument is actually
• to reassure the uncertainty that can be achieved with the measuring instrument; and
• to confirm whether or not there has been any alteration of the measuring instrument which could
introduce doubt about the results delivered in the elapsed period.
One of the most significant decisions regarding the calibration is “When to do it” and “How often to
do it”. A large number of factors influence the time interval that should be allowed between
calibrations and should be taken into account by the laboratory. The most important factors are:
• uncertainty of measurement required or declared by the laboratory;
• risk of a measuring instrument exceeding the limits of the maximum permissible error when in use;
• cost of necessary correction measures when it is found that the instrument was not appropriate over
a long period of time;
• type of instrument;
• tendency to wear and drift;
• manufacturer’s recommendation;
• extent and severity of use;
• environmental conditions (climatic conditions, vibration, ionizing radiation, etc.);
• trend data obtained from previous calibration records;
• recorded history of maintenance and servicing;
• frequency of cross-checking against other reference standards or measuring devices;
• frequency and quality of intermediate checks in the meantime;
• transportation arrangements and risk; and
• degree to which the serving personnel are trained.
ILAC-G24:2007 / OIML D 10:2007 (E)
Although the cost of calibration cannot normally be ignored in determining the calibration intervals,
the increased measurement uncertainties or a higher risk in terms of measurement quality and services
arising from longer intervals may mitigate against the apparently high cost of a calibration.
The process of determining calibration intervals is a complex mathematical and statistical process
requiring accurate and sufficient data taken during the calibration process. There appears to be no
universally applicable single best practice for establishing and adjusting the calibration intervals. This
has created a need for better understanding of the calibration interval determination. As no single
method is ideally suited for the whole range of measuring instruments, some of the simpler methods of
assigning and reviewing the calibration interval and their suitability for different types of instruments
are covered in this Document. The methods have been published in more detail in certain standards
(e.g. [2]), or by reputable technical organizations (e.g. [5], [6], [7]), or in relevant scientific journals.
The methods can be used for the initial selection of calibration intervals and the readjustment of these
intervals on the basis of experience. Laboratory-developed methods or methods adopted by the
laboratory may also be used if they are appropriate and if they are validated.
The laboratory should select appropriate methods and should document those used. Calibration results
should be collected as historical data, in order to base future decisions for calibration intervals of the
Independently from the determined calibration intervals, the laboratory should have an appropriate
system to ensure the proper functioning and calibration status of the standards and measuring
instruments used between calibrations (see Clauses 5.5.10 and of ISO/IEC 17025:2005).
2. Initial choice of calibration intervals
The initial decision in determining the calibration interval is based on the following factors:
• the instrument manufacturer’s recommendation;
• expected extent and severity of use;
• the influence of the environment;
• the required uncertainty in measurement;
• maximum permissible errors (e.g. by legal metrology authorities);
• adjustment of (or change in) the individual instrument;
• influence of the measured quantity (e.g. high temperature effect on thermocouples); and
• pooled or published data about the same or similar devices.
The decision should be made by a person or by persons with general experience of measurements, or
of the particular instruments to be calibrated, and preferably also with knowledge of the intervals used
by other laboratories. An estimate should be made for each instrument or group of instruments as to
the length of time the instrument is likely to remain within the maximum permissible error after
3. Methods of reviewing calibration intervals
Once calibration on a routine basis has been established, adjustment of the calibration intervals should
be possible in order to optimize the balance of risks and costs as stated in the introduction. It will
probably be found that the intervals initially selected do not give the desired optimum results due to a
number of reasons, for example:
• instruments may be less reliable than expected;
• the usage may not be as anticipated;
• it may be sufficient to carry out a limited calibration of certain instruments instead of a full
calibration; and
ILAC-G24:2007 / OIML D 10:2007 (E)
• the drift determined by the recalibration of the instruments may show that longer calibration
intervals may be possible without increasing risks, etc.
A range of methods is available for reviewing the calibration intervals. The method chosen differs
according to whether:
• instruments are treated individually or as groups (e.g. by manufacturer’s model or by type);
• instruments exceed the calibration by drift over time or by usage;
• instruments show different types of instabilities;
• instruments undergo adjustments; and
• data are available and importance is attached to the history of calibration of the instruments.
The so-called “engineering intuition” which fixed the initial calibration intervals, and a system which
maintains fixed intervals without review, are not considered as being sufficiently reliable and are
therefore not recommended.
Method 1: Automatic adjustment or “staircase” (calendar-time)
Each time an instrument is calibrated on a routine basis, the subsequent interval is extended if it is
found to be within e.g. 80 % of the maximum permissible error that is required for measurement, or
reduced if it is found to be outside this maximum permissible error. This “staircase” response may
produce a rapid adjustment of intervals and is easily carried out without clerical effort. When records
are maintained and used, possible trouble with a group of instruments indicating the need for a
technical modification, or preventive maintenance, will be known.
A disadvantage of systems treating instruments individually may be that it is difficult to keep the
calibration workload smooth and balanced, and that it requires detailed advanced planning.
It would be inappropriate to take an interval to extremes using this method. The risk associated with
withdrawing large numbers of certificates issued, or redoing large numbers of jobs may ultimately be
Method 2: Control chart (calendar-time)
Control charting is one of the most important tools of Statistical Quality Control (SQC) and welldescribed
in publications (e.g. [3], [4]). In principle, it works as follows: Significant calibration points
are chosen and the results are plotted against time. From these plots, both dispersion of results and
drift are calculated, the drift being either the mean drift over one calibration interval, or in the case of
very stable instruments, the drift over several intervals. From these figures, the optimum interval may
be calculated.
This method is difficult to apply (in fact it is very difficult to apply in the case of complex
instruments) and can virtually only be used with automatic data processing. Before calculations can
commence, considerable knowledge of the law of variability of the instrument, or similar instruments,
is required. Again, it is difficult to achieve a balanced workload. However, a considerable variation of
the calibration intervals from those prescribed is permissible without invalidating the calculations;
reliability can be calculated and in theory at least gives the efficient calibration interval. Furthermore,
the calculation of the dispersion of results will indicate whether the manufacturer’s specification limits
are reasonable and the analysis of drift found may help in indicating the cause of drift.
Method 3: “In-use” time
This is a variation on the foregoing methods. The basic method remains unchanged but the calibration
interval is expressed in hours of use, rather than calendar months. The instrument is fitted with an
elapsed time indicator and is returned for calibration when the indicator reaches a specified value.
Examples of instruments are thermocouples, used at extreme temperatures, dead weight tester for gas
ILAC-G24:2007 / OIML D 10:2007 (E)
pressure, length gauges (i.e. instruments that may be subject to mechanical wear). The important
theoretical advantage of this method is that the number of calibrations performed and therefore the
cost of calibration varies directly with the length of time that the instrument is used.
Furthermore, there is an automatic check on instrument utilization. However, there are many practical
disadvantages in using an automatic check, including:
• it cannot be used with passive instruments (e.g. attenuators) or standards (resistance, capacitance,
• it should not be used when an instrument is known to drift or deteriorate when on the shelf, or
when handled, or when subjected to a number of short on-off cycles;
• the initial cost of the provision and installation of suitable timers is high, and since users may
interfere with them, supervision may be required which again will increase costs;
• it is even more difficult to achieve a smooth flow of work than with the methods mentioned
above, since the (calibration) laboratory has no knowledge of the date on which the calibration
interval will terminate.
Method 4: In service checking, or “black-box” testing
This is a variation on methods 1 and 2 and is particularly suitable for complex instruments or test
consoles. Critical parameters are checked frequently (once a day or even more often) by portable
calibration gear, or preferably, by a “black box” made up specifically to check the selected parameters.
If the instrument is found to be outside the maximum permissible error by the “black box”, it is
returned for a full calibration.
The major advantage of this method is that it provides maximum availability for the instrument user. It
is very suitable for instruments geographically separated from the calibration laboratory, since a
complete calibration is only done when it is known to be required. The difficulty is in deciding on the
critical parameters and designing the “black box”.
Although theoretically the method is very reliable, this is slightly ambiguous, since the instrument may
be failing on some parameter not measured by the “black box”. In addition, the characteristics of the
“black box” itself may not remain constant.
Examples of instruments suitable for this method are density meters (resonance type); Pt-resistance
thermometers (in combination with calendar-time methods); dosimeters (source included); and sound
level meters (source included).
Method 5: Other statistical approaches
Methods based on statistical analysis of an individual instrument or instrument type can also be a
possible approach. These methods are gaining more and more interest, especially when used in
combination with adequate software tools. An example of such a software tool and its mathematical
background is described by A. Lepek [9].
When large numbers of identical instruments (i.e. groups of instruments) are to be calibrated, the
calibration intervals can be reviewed with the help of statistical methods. Detailed examples can be
found for example in the work of L.F. Pau [7].
Method comparison
No one method is ideally suited for the full range of instruments encountered (see Table 1).
Furthermore, it should be noted that the method chosen will be affected by whether the laboratory
intends to introduce planned maintenance. There may be other factors which will affect the
laboratory’s choice of method. The method chosen will, in turn, affect the form of records to be kept.

Dalam era globalisasi, peranan mutu dari suatu produk, sangat penting untuk memenangkan pasar. Pembuktian mutu dari suaru produk memerlukan berbagai sertifikat, antara lain sertifikat hasil uji laboratorium. Sertifikat hasil uji laboroatorium berfungsi sebagai bukti dari mutu suatu produk dan komposisinya, yang pada umumnya disajikan di dalam kemasan produk.
Hasil uji laboratorium merupakan salah satu dokumen penting, oleh karena itu sepatuutnya dikeluarkan oleh laboratorium yang telah terakreditasi oleh Lembaga Internasional seperti Internasional Standard Organization (ISO), atau oleh lembaga yang telah memperoleh kewenangan Internasional untuk mengakreditasi laboratorium di Indonesia, yaitu Komite Akreditasi Nasional (KAN).
Laboratorium yang telah diakreditasi adalah laboratorium yang sudah mendapat pengakuan formal, bahwa laboratorium tersebut mampu melaksanakan pengujian tertentu. Untuk memperoleh akreditasi, laboratorium harus dikelola atau dioperasikan sesuai dengan sistim mutu Internasional yaitu ISO/IEC 17025:2005. Oleh karena itu, Laboratorium yang produk akhirnya adalah data uji yang harus dapat dipertanggung-jawabkan kepada publik, maka keberadaan laboratorium terakreditasi sangatlah penting.
Cukup banyak laboratorium di Indonesia, baik dari lembaga pemerintah maupun swasta, telah melakukan pelayanan pengujian, namun karena operasionalisasi laboratorium belum sepenuhnya memenuhi standar, belum berdasarkan ISO/IEC 17025-2005, maka beberapa prinsip pokok belum dilaksanakan, antara lain penggunaan metoda analisis belum mampu telusur, metoda analisis belum divalidasi, peralatan penting yang sangat mempengarui hasil analisis jarang atau tidak pernah dikalibrasi, uji profisiensi jarang/tidak pernah diikuti, dan kurang memadainya buku petunjuk operasional alat, metoda, dan belum mempunyai panduan mutu, yang menjadi pegangan komitmen dari semua personil laboratorium, dan setiap pekerjaan belum terdekumentasi dengan baik, kinerja dari laboratorium belum terukur, sehingga laboratorium seperti ini belum dapat dipercaya oleh publik.
Salah satu cara untuk membangun kepercayaan pelanggan, dan menghasilkan data yang dapat dipertanggung-jawabkan publik, adalah mengoperasionalkan laboratorium dengan mengikuti standar internasional, yaitu ISO/IEC 17025 : 2005.

Sebagaimana telah ditentukan didalam klausul ISO/IEC 17025,bahwa laboratorium pengujian dan atau kalibrasi harus mencantumkan laporan perhitungan ketidakpastian di dalam sertifikat hasil uji.

Oleh karena itu kami menawarkan suatu program komputer sederhana yang berbasiskan EXCEL MICROSOFT WORD yang berguna untuk menghitung nilai ketidakpasian secara otomatis.

Cukup mudah untuk digunakan daripada menghitung secara manual,yang akan menghabiskan banyak energi dan waktu yang lama.

Bahkan ada lelucon yang mengatakan bahwa kalo kita menghitung ketidakpastian maka kapan waktu kita untuk bekerja karena membutuhkan banyak waktu.
