    Significance and Use

    5.1 This practice is adequate for use with all ASTM Test Methods which require the reporting of temperature measurements.

    5.2 The Report of Calibration, however named, is the physical output of the calibration laboratory. It shall be prepared so that both the results of the measurement(s) and the non-technical information necessary to support those results are conveyed in a manner that ensures accurate communication and justification of the results.

    5.3 This practice is not meant to supersede requirements of other standards practice such as ISO/IEC 17025 or ANSI/NCSL Z540.3.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice contains reporting requirements for thermometer calibrations included in ASTM Committee E20 Test Methods.

    1.2 This practice covers reports of calibration for radiation thermometers, liquid-in-glass thermometers, resistance thermometers, digital thermometers, and new thermocouples.

    Note 1: This practice does not apply to used thermocouples.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
