The purpose of this guide is to identify the requirements for the selection, adoption, use and keep of GCC measurement standards used in the calibration of national measurement standards of the GCC countries or used in interlaboratory comparison programs organized by the GCC Standardization Organization or the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM)
This procedure applies to past, present and planned multilateral or bilateral, key or Supplementary comparisons or pilot studies that have been initiated, organized and reviewed by a GULFMET technical committee (TC) or Working Group. (WG)
This document gives practical guidelines for comparisons within the framework of GULFMET in addition to the Technical Supplement to the Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA), for the recognition of national measurement standards and of calibration and measurement certificates issued by National Metrology Institutes (NMIs), and the BIPM document Guidelines for CIPM key comparisons. These comparisons may be GULFMET key comparisons, supplementary comparisons, bilateral comparisons or even pilot comparisons for the validation of new devices and /or new measurement techniques.
Based on the recommendations of GULFMET assembly in its second meeting held in Dubai on September 26, 2011; which included the recommendation to form a committee for Quality in Metrology under the umbrella of GULFMET, the Technical Council has approved in its twenty-fourth meeting (Riyadh October 27 to 29, 2011) this recommendation and agrees that the United Arab Emirates will host the secretariat of the committee.
This guideline for the Technical Committee for Quality in Metrology (TC-Quality) is applicable for National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) and Designated Institutes (DIs) who have not yet presented their Quality Management System (QMS) to TC-Quality.
The purpose of the annual report is to provide information about the main changes to the QMS and QMS life for the period under consideration. Information should be brief, but should include the main points and be clearly understandable. Lists and figures should be in English. Acronyms should be avoided unless widely known or else should be explained.
This TC- QUALITY guideline is applicable for National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) and Designated Institutes (DIs) who have to present their Quality Management System (QMS) for re-evaluation within TC- QUALITY.
This document specifies the procedure for reviewing the quality management systems (QMSs) of GULFMET National Metrology Institutes (NMI) and Designated Institutes (DIs) within the framework of the review of calibration and measurement capabilities (CMCs) declared by GULFMET Member NMIs and DIs.
This guide is developed with the purpose of having an agreed method to conduct formal on-site visits by peers, clearly laying down the objectives, requirements for development and documentation of the findings and for reporting the review outcomes.
The aim of the Law is to ensure that the measurements made at the level of Member States increase confidence in the results of testing and calibration and pave the way for mutual international recognition.
This guide aims to regulate the supervision and metrological supervision exercised on the measurements in respect of the exploitation, installation, use, maintenance, repair and / or in respect of their use or performance in order to verify that they are used properly and in accordance with the laws and regulations in this regard.
