Introduction Calibration plays very important role in every organization. It is a part of a GMP process and if not performed and maintained correctly-it can lead to poor quality and performance of manufactured goods. Calibration is the comparison of an instrument to a known standard. Purpose Purpose of this document is to strengthen calibration procedures and compliance to the GMP standards in PolMed Sligo plant. This document details the planned calibration approach for laboratory equipment that will be used on site. It will also deliver suggested actions to ensure the effective application of the calibration plan. A Standard Operating Procedure for calibration of Scales is included in Appendix A. Scope The following equipment falls under…show more content…
Do not use”. Out of Calibration form must be completed and forwarded to the Calibration department. In the event of calibration failures, all products affected will be assessed to determine if there is any impact to its performance. Calibration Documentation A comprehensive documentation system has to be generated to provide the following: • List of all equipment, with associated calibration numbers and the personnel responsible for ensuring equipment is calibrated when needed. • Training tools and standard operating procedures (SOP’s) to ensure sufficient knowledge of calibration systems and calibration of instruments where necessary. • Measurement restrictions on all equipment…show more content…
6.1.5 Ensure the balance is level on its resting surface and free from external influences. 6.1.7 Ensure scale is reading “zero” prior to placing any weights on the pan. 6.2 Linearity Test 6.2.1 The scales should be tared before starting the calibration. 6.2.2 Distribute the weights evenly, load weights carefully onto the instrument. 6.2.3 The value displayed by the scales and the applied load should be noted on the Form0012. 6.2.4 If the difference between the applied load value and the displayed value at any test point falls outside the allowed tolerance of the scales, the equipment should be adjusted where possible and the calibration repeated. 6.3 Repeatability Test 6.3.1 Place a weight equivalent to approximately 50% of the operating range on scales and record the weight. 6.3.2 Remove the load. 6.3.3 Place back on the scales two further times recording the weight value each time on the Form0012. 6.3.4 Place a weight equivalent to approximately 25% of the operating range on the instrument and record the weight. 6.3.5 Remove the load. 6.3.6 Place back on scales two further times recording the weight value each time on the
