We have a build approaching but one of our PSU's used in the function tester will be out of calibration in 3 weeks. Most likely we will complete the build whilst the PSU is still within it's calibration date but if the build overruns there is a danger that the PSU will go out of calibration.
I can send the PSU for calibration now but this will delay the build or hope that we encounter no major issues and the build completes before the calibration expires.
Realistically, calibration is based on probability. Calibrated now, so probably good for a year.
Extending a day or two past the calibration due date should not really adversely affect the test outcome but I am concerned about the legality.
Does anyone know what the legal impact obligation is during manufacturing with relation to the calibration date of test equipment?
