Title: WM-SVS-TP-003, Rev. 0, effective date 10/15/2015, WM-SVS Characterization Services User-Performed Calibration (UPC) Program

Abstract

Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Procedure P330-2, Control and Calibration of Measuring and Test Equipment (M&TE), requires the establishment of a Measurement Assurance Program and/or a User-Performed Calibration (UPC) Process, as applicable. This UPC has been developed in accordance with the authorization provided in QPA-VAR-2013. This program ensures that qualified individuals perform measurement control and develop measurement control and calibration procedures. Nondestructive analysis (NDA) instruments used for accountability, confirmation, and verification measurements are maintained by the Waste Management Services (WM-SVS) Characterization Services Team. NDA reference standards used for instrument control and calibration are certified for use by the Standards and Calibration Laboratory (S&CL) before use. The Characterization Services Team performs the measurements, develops procedures for performing instrument UPC, and ensures the measurement systems’ control before measurements are performed.
