    Hello, I hope you are well.
    I am looking for guidance regarding the completion of technical records in terms of leaving blanks in sections that are not required, e.g. a temperature monitoring record will have 2 blank rows out of every 7 as the temperature is not recorded at the weekends. I want technicians to write N/A in cells that do not need completing but want to back that up with a Standard reference. Is that the sort of question you can answer?

  • New measurement system

    Which standard defines how a new measurement system (CMM for example) should be run off and proven OK for use?

Or a procedure must be created according to the manual and the laboratory's policy? 2. If the laboratory has a code of ethics and conducts, to which every employee signed his agreement to respect, does that prove the company's impartiality and confidentiality?
