Currently in the U. Having two different national standards can be confusing for both laboratories and customers; therefore, we have put together a brief guide to describe the basic differences between the two standards. Z differs from because it pertains only to calibration laboratories. Z particularly stresses both calibration and verification of measurement instruments and equipment.

This standard provides a mechanism for promoting confidence in calibration laboratories and measuring and test equipment when it can be shown that they are operated in compliance with its requirements.

It is identical to the ISO Guide corrected and reprinted, with the exception of minor editorial changes to facilitate its use in the United States. These changes are as follows: 1 a dot on the line is used as the decimal marker instead of a comma, 2 the spelling of words is in accordance with Webster's Third New International Dictionary instead of the Oxford English Dictionary, and 3 the running heads on pages are partially modified.

This is done through the use of a system of functional components. Collectively, these components are used to manage and assure that the accuracy and reliability of the measuring and test equipment are in accordance with identified performance requirements. In implementing its objective, this National Standard describes the technical requirements for establishing and maintaining: the acceptability of the performance of measuring and test equipment; the suitability of a calibration for its intended application; the compatibility of measurements with the National Measurement System; and the traceability of measurement results to the International System of Units SI.
