Why is weight calibration important?

30 June 2015

Good practice guidelines advise that regular checks on the condition and accuracy of weights should be performed.

The accuracy of test weights can be affected over time by environmental influences or deterioration due to use. 

METTLER TOLEDO's purpose-built mass laboratory performs calibrations which meet the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005. UKAS calibration certificates detail the description of the weight, its uncertainty of measurement and deviation to the tolerance limits of OIML.

Currently for every three test weights calibrated, you can have the fourth one calibrated for free. METTLER TOLEDO's scope of calibration now includes E2, F1 and M1 weights between 1mg and 20kg.
