MSL offers calibration services in each of the unit areas listed.

If you require a calibration, please discuss your requirements with the relevant contact person who will assist in defining the scope of the work required and  provide a written work order agreement that outlines the cost and time frame for the job.  This must be signed and returned before any work can begin.

Please wait until you have a firm booking before sending equipment to MSL.

MSL calibration test or verification reports are issued under the Measurement Standards Act 1992 and the National Standards Regulations 1976 (Amendment No. 1, 1992). They are also clearly marked to show additional formal endorsement of their validity by other parties...more >>

The uncertainty statements of all MSL reports follow the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement, JGM 100:2008 (GUM 1995 with minor corrections). We have produced some guidelines to assist in making the best use of our calibration certificates and to help you understand the meaning of the uncertainty statements used. See: "Making the Most of your Calibration Certificate" below.
