In the period between 29th September and 1st October 2010 the seminar entitled “Accreditation of Calibration Laboratories and Uncertainty of Measurement” was held as part of the regional Quality Infrastructure Project - IPA 2008, Pau, France.
The seminar was organised for the representatives of accreditation bodies and national metrology institutes (NMIs) of the Western Balkans countries. The seminar was hosted and delivered by the AETS (Application Européenne de Technologies et de Services).
Participants were representatives of accreditation bodies and national metrology institutes (NMIs) of the Western Balkans countries (Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, FYRM, Serbia, Montenegro and Croatia). Boris Laštro, Assistant Director of the Directorate of Measures and Precious Measures, and Milica Jovčić MSc, Accreditation Board of Serbia, attended the seminar on behalf of the Republic of Serbia.
The seminar comprised theoretical and practical parts – practice examples, and included all elements of ISO/IEC 17025 with special emphasis on uncertainty of measurement and traceability. Due to a good organisation of the seminar that enabled successful and constructive discussion (not only by means of lectures) numerous queries raised by participants were answered.
