Dear Mr. Mindaugas
There are 3-ASTM(1106 Primary Calibration,Secondary Calibration and Reproducibility
of Sensor Response)standards 1-JNDI(Reciprocity Standard) and 1-ISO new standard
that is really USA's Reciprocity Standard.
Physical Acoustics Corporation supplies these calibrations with every AE sensor we
make and we will be delighted to discuss this further.Additionally, the Institute of
Acoustic Emission in Paris France is in the final stages of obtaining the necessary
licenses to do the same types of calibration that are traceable to NIST and thus, ISO.
New Russian company diaPAC Ltd. will have soon the same capabilities.
Sotirios Vahaviolos,Ph.D.

reply by Udo Schlengermann :

There are 3 European Standards on Acoustic Emission:
EN 13477-1: Equipment description
EN 13477-2: Verification of operation characteristics
EN 13554: General principles

Kind regards
