Update on the National Center for Gear Metrology

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Traceability to national or international standards is clearly required by commercial sector standards including ISO 9001:1994 (Ref. 1), ISO/IEC Guide 25 (Ref. 2), and the US equivalent of ISO/IEC Guide 25-ANSI/NCSL Z540-2-1997 (Ref. 3). In the draft replacement to ISO/IEC Guide 25-ISO 17025; measurements, not just equipment, must be traceable to SI units or reference to a natural constant. The implications of traceability to the US gear industry are significant. In order to meet the standards, either gear manufacturers must have calibrated artifacts or must establish their own traceability to SI units.
