RMQA Holds Mass Metrology and Calibration Training Workshop

To address accuracy and traceability of data collected using weighing balance, a training workshop, Understanding the Principles of Mass Metrology and Corresponding Uncertainty Components in Mass Calibration, was held in 15 July 2011 at Umali Rooms B and C.

The course was held in 2 parts: (A) principles of mass calibration (lecture) and (B) hands-on calibration of weighing balances.

Seventy participants from laboratories around IRRI attended the workshop, which was organized by IRRI's Risk Management and Quality Assurance (RMQA) office and conducted by Roxan de Luna Roxas, quality and technical manager, Metrologie Concepts Solutions, Inc., Philippines.

Proper calibration of weighing instruments will ensure that measurement data generated are accurate and traceable to international weight standards.
