Tests performed with out of calibration test sets can return to service devices which are not performing to regulated specifications.
- Inaccurate results: Calibration cycles greater than recommended may not yield accurate measurements
- Inaccurate measurements resulting from uncalibrated tools may violate industry standards and violate regulatory body requirements
- Tests found to be performed by an out of calibration test set can result in containment actions and unplanned rework
- Devices calibrated on uncalibrated test sets may function improperly, cause interference issues violating government regulatory requirements, and/or damage other equipment
