A revision of ILAC P10, ILAC Policy on Traceability of Measurement Results, is currently underway. The current version of ILAC P10 was released in 2013. Since then, the document has been implemented in all regions and has established clear rules for how metrological traceability can be documented. Further ILAC P10 has greatly influenced the revision of clauses on metrological traceability in ISO/IEC 17025:2017, General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. This revision maintains the core of the policy on metrological traceability; however, the policy update is needed due to development in metrological traceability and the accreditation of Reference Material Producers (RMP).
In the process of revision of ILAC P10 a task force group has reviewed and addressed comments made by members of the ILAC Accreditation Committee (AIC) and prepared the revised draft, which went through two stages of voting and will be published shortly.
Based on the results of the amendments to the new version of ILAC P10, the Belarusian State Centre for Accreditation will update the relevant BSCA policy PL SM 7.0-2015, Policy on Metrological Traceability of Measurements Results.After the publication of the final versions of the documents, they will be made available on BSCA website and in IS Accreditation.
