DAkkS calibration laboratory

DAkkS Calibration Laboratory at BRAND

Accredited by the DAkkS as calibration laboratory in the German calibration Service

Since the beginning of 2010, DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH) has been the sole provider of accreditation services for regulatory matters in Germany. The legal foundations for DAkkS are Regulation (EC) No. 765/2008 and the German Federal Accreditation Law (AkkStelleG).

DAkkS is the successor to DKD (Deutscher Kalibrierdienst) for calibration laboratories.

As a joint governmental-industrial body, DAkkS represents a link between the national standards established by Germany's PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt) and the measuring instruments used in industrial and research laboratories, and by testing institutions and authorities. It thus effectively complements the existing verification system, the primary focus of which is consumer protection.

DAkkS calibration laboratory

The former DKD calibration laboratory at BRAND for volumetric instruments was changed into an accredited calibration laboratory by the DAkkS according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17 025. The calibration laboratory at BRAND is therefore authorized to issue DAkkS calibration certificates for the following volumetric instruments. They are available in several languages.
