How to apply for our calibration services

 

The EPA’s instrument calibration service is currently not accepting instruments for calibration.  Accredited calibration services in the UK can be found on the UKAS website

 

Please contact the Calibration Service in advance to arrange a suitable date for calibration.  Download the application form, and send it to us with the instrument for calibration.

Using the Calibration Service

Customers should note the following:

  • Transportation of instruments to and from the EPA is the responsibility of the customer.
  • Instruments should always be suitably packaged with the words FRAGILE ELECTRONIC INSTRUMENT, or similar, prominently displayed on the packaging.
  • Instruments should be switched off during transportation.
  • Charged batteries and/or power supplies should be provided by the customer.
  • Suspected faults must be reported to the laboratory in advance of testing.
  • An official order number must be provided.
  • Instruments will not be returned via the parcel post system unless specifically requested by the client – in which case, arrangements should be made to provide extra packaging. On request, we can organise courier transport to return instruments to our customers. The charge for this will be included in our invoice.
