E1 - Balances as Inspection, Measuring and Test Equipment in the QM System

Target group: Lab managers, users and quality assurance staff working in production and control.

The incorporation of balances into quality assurance systems (e.g. DIN EN ISO 9000: 2000, GMP, GLP, ISO 17025) is of key importance. Balances used as inspection, measuring and test equipment must be tested at appropriate intervals to ensure their proper functioning and process capability; test results must be documented in suitable form.

This course covers:

  • Definition of terms, interpretation of metrological data
  • Proper selection and correct handling of balances and calibration weights
  • Detecting and minimizing factors affecting balances and weighing samples
  • Practical measurements on laboratory balances under supervision
  • Inspection, measuring and test equipment monitoring; the specific requirements of DIN EN ISO 10012
  • Equipment qualification DQ, IQ, OQ, PQ
  • The use of non-automatic balances and balances in legal metrology
  • Weights, weight testing and certification
  • Calculating the measurement uncertainty on electronic balances
  • Determination of operating range and smallest desired net weight according to USP <41>
