Documentation of Norm Compliance of Test Sieves
For many of their applications, laboratory test sieves are classified as measurement instruments and, depending on national and international regulations, have to be inspected by their manufacturer prior to shipment. Blau-Metall complies with these regulations as every single sieve we deliver has undergone optical inspection according to the standard with which the sieve complies. Operators of test sieves are also obligated to re-certify sieves at regular intervals if they are being used as measurement instruments under applicable statutory regulations. Blau-Metall offers cost-efficient re-certification services with fast turnarounds and complete documentation made available to the customer.
Inspection Documents According to EN 10204
Certificate of Compliance with the Standard / Certificate of Compliance with Tolerances
For every Blau-Metall test sieve, we issue a free Certificate of Compliance 2.1 to attest that the sieve was manufactured according to the specified standard or tolerances and has passed optical inspections as required by the respective standard. Additionally, a Test Sieve Record Card is issued for every Blau-Metall sieve to keep track of inspections carried out for that specific sieve.
Certificate of Inspection 3.1 / Certificate of Calibration 3.1
Upon customer request, we can deliver test sieves with an Inspection Certificate that includes all results obtained during optical inspection of the sieve to demonstrate its norm-compliance and increase confidence in the results of sieve analyses carried out with our products. Optionally, the inspection process can be carried out as a calibration in which at least three times as many apertures are measured than are required for the conventional certification according to ISO 3310 / EN ISO 5223 or their ASTM equivalents.
Inspection results for each sieve we deliver are saved in our records for at least one year so that Inspection Certificates can be ordered by our customers after the fact, should they be required.
