Detailed Explaination of Service Levels

Transcat offers several service levels to accommodate the varying quality system requirements a customer may have regarding an instrument’s calibration.  We understand that one size does not fit all.  Considering this, you have your choice from the service options below.  You can view a summary of these service levels and sample certificates here.

Transcat’s calibration specialists are happy to help answer your questions, however the ultimate decision on which calibration level that is required is solely at your discretion.  All Transcat calibration reports are available online via Transcat’s C3 portal. 

1.

Calibration without Data (Non-accredited)

This level of service provides you with a calibration certificate and sticker for your instrument.  We will evaluate it to a Pass/Fail criterion and no as-found or as-left data will be recorded or provided.  This level is unaccredited and not traceable to a national standard.  This level of calibration will not have an accreditation logo.

2.

Calibration with Data (Non-accredited)

This level of service provides you with a calibration in which the as found and as left data will be recorded and provided along with your calibration certificate and sticker for your instrument.  We will also provide you a separate out of tolerance (OOT) report, as well as Test Accuracy Ratios (TAR) when the TAR’s are <4:1.  This level is unaccredited and not traceable to a national standard.  This level of calibration will not have an accreditation logo.

3.

Accredited Calibration With Data & Uncertainties (Simple Acceptance)

This level of service provides you with a calibration in which the as found and as left data with full test uncertainty ratios (TUR) will be recorded and provided along with your calibration certificate and sticker for your instrument.  This level fully complies with ISO 17025 and Z540.3 standards, and meeting NIST Traceability requirements. This level of calibration will have an accreditation logo.

a.

With Optional Guard Banding

This level of service provides you with a calibration in which the as-found and as left data with full test uncertainty ratios (TUR) and Guard Banding will be recorded and provided along with your calibration certificate and sticker for your instrument.  This level fully complies with ISO 17025 and Z540.3 standards and meeting NIST Traceability requirements.  Transcat’s default Guard Banding method will be Simple Acceptance (ASME B89.7.3.1). This level of calibration will have an accreditation logo.

Customers may also choose an alternate Guard Banding Decision Rule. This must be specified at the time of placing their order

  • ILAC G8:2019, Table 1
  • ASME B89.7.3.1, clause 5.2, Stringent Acceptance
  • ASME B89.7.3.1, clause 5.3, Relaxed Acceptance

b.

With Optional Probability of Compliance to the Specifications (PCS)

This level of service provides you with a calibration in which the as-found and as left data with full test uncertainty ratios (TUR) and Transcat’s PCS feature will be recorded and provided along with your calibration certificate and sticker for your instrument.  This level fully complies with ISO 17025 and Z540.3 standards, and meeting NIST Traceability requirements.  Transcat’s PCS feature will help normalize your data and help you determine if measurement risk exists.  For more information on Transcat’s PCS tool, check out our white paper. This level of calibration will have an accreditation logo.

c.

With Optional Guard Banding and PCS

This level of service provides you with a calibration in which the as-found and as left data with full test uncertainty ratios (TUR) and Guard Banding and Transcat’s PCS feature will be recorded and provided along with your calibration certificate and sticker for your instrument.  This level fully complies with ISO 17025 and Z540.3 standards, and meeting NIST Traceability requirements.  Transcat’s default Guard Banding method will be Simple Acceptance (ASME B89.7.3.1).  In addition, Transcat’s PCS feature will help normalize your data and help you determine if measurement risk exists.  This level of calibration will have an accreditation logo.

Customers may also choose an alternate Guard Banding Decision Rule. This must be specified at the time of placing their order

  • ANSI/NCSL Z540.3: 2006, Method 5
  • ANSI/NCSL Z540.3: 2006 Method 6
  • ILAC G8:2019, Table 1
