Measurement management systems - Requirements for measurement processes and measuring equipment

Executive summary

Requirements for management systems for measurement processes and measuring equipment.


This International Standard specifies generic requirements and provides guidance for the management of measurement processes and metrological confirmation of measuring equipment used to support and demonstrate compliance with metrological requirements, and improve measurement activities and quality of products. It specifies the quality management requirements of a measurement management system that can be used by organizations performing measurements as part of the overall management system, and to ensure metrological requirements are met.

This International Standard can be used:
• by customers, when specifying products required;
• by suppliers, when specifying products offered;
• by legislative or regulatory bodies;
• in assessment and audit of measurement management systems.

This International Standard is not intended to be used as a requisite for demonstrating conformance with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or any other standard. Interested parties can agree to use this International Standard as an input for satisfying measurement management system requirements in certification activities.

This International Standard is not intended as a substitute for, or as an addition to, the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025.

Other standards and guides exist for particular elements affecting measurement results, for example, details of measurement methods, competence of personnel, and interlaboratory comparisons.
