Traceability System provided by Measurement Law
Measurement Law revised in November 1993 introduced the national standards provision system and the calibration laboratory accreditation system in the traceability system. The system was established aiming at highly accurate measurement and quality management reliability in leading-edge industries, etc.
Along with recent globalization of economic activities, traceability of measurement is increasingly becoming important as the technological basis of compatibility evaluation procedure in economic transaction between countries.
JCSS plays an extremely important role to support reliability of test and calibration results from the basis that is backed by traceability to international weighing standards and the technological capabilities of accredited laboratories.
According to Measurement Law-related regulations and ISO/IEC 17025 requirements, the calibration laboratory accreditation system is programmed to accredit calibration laboratories that have technological capabilities for calibration. The certificate is signed by the chief director of National Institute of Technology and Evaluation.
