EN ISO 17025 standard for accreditation testing lab require
that uncertainty measurement. Have any body are there has this info.

To solve the problem, we are using the different terms 'Nondestructive TESTING = non-quantitative NDT' and 'Nondestructive MEASURING = quantitative NDT'.
If you are applying only standard techniques like radiography, ultrasonics for flaw detection, etc., you have to convince the auditor, that this is 'TESTING' and not 'MEASURING', and that therefore ISO 17025 is not applicable.
On the other side, if you are doing wall thickness measuring by ultrasonics, hardening depth measuring by eddy current, corrosion depth measuring by radiography, etc., you or your level-3-man has to know about the accuracy. But this is not a simple task (depending on frequency, film graininess, etc.).
Sometimes, if you have new equipment, or if your equipment is maintenanced periodically by the manufacturer, then the manufacturer possibly could supply you with accuracy data or with a data sheet.

Re: ISO 17025 reply by Udo Schlengermann
Standard EN ISO/IEC 17025 is important for all kind of testing and calibration laboratories.
As much as uncertainty is concerned, please read chapter 5.4.6: Estimation of uncertainty of measurement, especially the three notes.
note 1 says that the degree of estimation of uncertainty should be chosen depending on the requirements of the tests, the requirements of the client and depending on existing limits.
note 2 says, that if the test method is well definded (including uncertainty)there is no further need for validation of uncertainty by the test laboratory applying this method.
note 3 gives a hint for further information to ISO 5725 and the "Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement" published by BIMP, IEC, ISO et al.
so there is a wide for for agreements with clients and auditors in relation to specific test methods.

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform
The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is
based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing
qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor
temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The
PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning,
corrosion mapping and composite testing.
Ultrasonic tomograph for imaging of concrete structures А1040 MIRA
Applicable for concrete inspection allowing imaging of the internal
structure of objects from conc
rete, reinforced concrete, different
stones. The operation applies pulse-echo technique at one-side access
to the object. The instrument is feasible for concrete inspection for
searching conduct ducts, conduits, detection of foreign inclusions,
holes, honeycombing, cracks and other concrete defects.
M2M PANTHER is a phased-array equipment designed for both desktop and industrial applications, offer
ing unparalleled performance in a compact unit. It combines the speed required for industrial integrated Phased-Array Ultrasound (PAUT) solutions, with the most complete set of total focusing method (TFM) imaging techniques, making it the ultimate tool for R&D and procedure qualification.
TVC awarded UKAS accreditation
TVC are delighted to finally announce we have been awarded UKAS
accreditation for our calibration
Laboratory accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 enables us to
conduct the Electrical Verification of Ultrasonic Flaw Detection
Equipment to BS EN 12668-1:2010. It has taken many months of hard
work and we want to thank our staff for all their efforts during
this massive undertaking.
