GWP - The Scientific Global Standard for Risk-based Lifecycle Management of Weighing Equipment

Calibration and routine testing of instruments is required by GxP however sometimes very time consuming and also costly. Routine testing of weighing systems is carried out very frequently in the laboratory, however, less frequently or always never in the production area, even though that weighing in the production floor has a similar importance and quality relevance as compared to the laboratory. Further to this mismatch, the routine tests very frequently are not adequate to verify the performance of the weighing systems. Learn how to • Interpret calibration data of weighing instruments • Identify and analyze weighing process requirements • Define and understand the concept of minimum sample weight • Identify critical balance and scale properties • Apply risk management for weighing applications • Establish appropriate balance and scale routine testing schemes • Integrate weighing process requirements into the company's quality management system
