SE "IVANO-FRANKIVSKSTANDARTMETROLOGY" cooperates with the international metrological organization of Central and Eastern Europe COOMET to confirm its measuring and calibration capabilities for measuring units of gas volume and volume flow rate. For this purpose, international verifications of national standards and external inspections of the quality system of the enterprise for compliance with the requirements of DSTU ISO/IEC 17025 are constantly carried out.
The company has participated in three international comparisons of standards, which are completed and as a result of which the company first received and then successfully confirmed the СMС tables in the international database of International Bureau of Weights and Measures BIPM (Paris) KCDB, which provides international recognition of calibration results performed using the standards of SE "IVANO-FRANKIVSKSTANDARTMETROLOGY".
SE "IVANO-FRANKIVSKSTANDARTMETROLOGY" is a signatory of the “Agreement On Mutual Recognition of National Standards and Certificates of Calibration and Measurement Issued by National Metrological Institutes (CIPM MRA) of 14 October 2003.
Within the framework of the CIPM MRA agreement SE “IVANO-FRANKIVSKSTANDARTMETROLOGY” cooperates with the International Organization of EURO-ASIAN COOPERATION OF NATIONAL METROLOGICAL INSTITUTIONS (COOMET).
SE "IVANO-FRANKIVSKSTANDARTMETROLOGY" signed bilateral agreements on cooperation and recognition of test results with National Institutes of other countries, such as SMU (Slovak Institute of Metrology) and BelGIM (Belarusian Institute of Metrology).
SE "IVANO-FRANKIVSKSTANDARTMETROLOGY" takes an active part in the meetings of TC 1.4 "FLOW RATE” of COOMET thanks to which we are active participants in international comparisons of national standards within the regional metrological organization and verifications under the auspices of the International Bureau of Weights and Measures BIPM.
For the last 20 years SE "IVANO-FRANKIVSKSTANDARTMETROLOGY" has taken part in 2 key comparisons and 4 additional comparisons. Key comparisons were conducted with the participation of various Regional Metrological Organizations (RMO), such as COOMET, EURAMET, SIM and APMP. SE "IVANO-FRANKIVSKSTANDARTMETROLOGY" has experience in conducting international comparisons of standards as a pilot organization (coordinator) with the preparation of relevant reports.
In 2020 our specialists are scheduled to participate in a meeting of the EURAMET Technical Committee on Flow Rate.
By participating in international comparisons and confirming the level of equivalence of national standards, the company supports measurement and calibration capabilities in the BIPM database and there are currently three CMC lines.
According to the results of the latest comparisons under the COOMET 680/Ru-a/16 Project, we plan to receive another CMC line in the range of gas volume flow rate measurements up to 6500 m3/h.
The quality management system (QMS) of the enterprise is accredited by the National Accreditation Agency of Ukraine (NAAU) according to DSTU ISO/ IEC 17025 and according to COOMET recommendations is externally inspected by independent auditors and experts of the COOMET Quality Forum every 5 years. Due to the international recognition of measuring and calibration capabilities on the Calibration Certificates issued by our Scientific Metrological Center, it is allowed to use the CIPM MRA logo.
