For all performed calibrations CMI has a unified quality system, which fulfills the requirements of CSN EN ISO/IEC 17025 (Chapter 4 of the standard “Management requirements” is in compliance with CSN EN ISO 9001:2008). This quality system is documented in the quality manual of CMI and in the quality manuals (it unifies QMS and at the same time it is quality manual for testing and calibration laboratory) of the internal organization units (Certification of products, etc.). The quality manuals can be shown to customers on request.
CMI is the signatory for the Czech Republic of the international Arrangement of the CIPM MRA on mutual recognition of national standards and calibration certificates published by the national metrology institutes (NMIs) that signed the arrangement. In agreement with this document measurements provided in the fields, ranges and with calibration and measurement capabilities (CMC), given in the BIPM database http://kcdb.bipm.org/ , are accepted by the other signatory NMIs. The mutual recognition of calibration certificates within the scope of the CIPM MRA is based on mutual confidence, supported by successful international measurement comparisons, in which CMI regularly participates. To increase the confidence an international audit of the CMI quality system took place in 2002 within the working group of EUROMET QS FORUM. All NMIs participated in this project had sufficient confidence in the QS of the CMI laboratories concerned and their ability to fulfill the requirements of the MRA. In agreement with these facts, the general director of CMI published a Self-declaration of quality system in CMI. Reports about quality systems of CMI and CMI designated institutes are sent every year to Technical Committee for Quality of EURAMET and they are assessed by this Committee. CMI and CMI designated institutes presented successfully their quality system in the year 2009. Next presentation will be in 2015.
