NRC calibration services are designed to help manufacturers and users of precision instruments achieve the highest possible levels of measurement quality and productivity. They are the highest order of such services available in Canada and provide a direct link between a client's precision equipment or transfer standards and the national measurement standards. Services are available to public and private organizations and individuals.
The calibrations services listed check or characterize particular instruments, devices, and sets of standards. Unless otherwise stated, each service covers calibration of an item on a one time per request basis. The client, in most cases, ships the item requiring calibration to the NRC laboratories in Ottawa, Ontario. The calibrated item is shipped back to the client, followed under separate cover by a report of the calibration results.
The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) does not wish to compete with any Canadian organization, public or private, whose income is derived from calibration contracts. Therefore, before making a calibration, NRC asks for a statement to the effect that the client is not prepared to have any organization other than NRC perform the work, together with the reasons for that decision.
