Title: Guide for establishing and maintaining a calibration-constancy intercomparison system for microwave-oven-compliance survey instruments (revised)

Public Law 90-602, the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968 (the Act), directs the Department of Health and Human Services to evaluate production-testing and quality-control programs carried out by the industry to assure adequacy of safeguards against hazardous electronic-product radiation and to assure that the products comply with performance standards. Under the Act, manufacturers of microwave ovens, a product listed under 21 CFR 1002.61, are required to certify that their microwave ovens are in compliance with all of the applicable provisions of the Federal Performance Standard for Microwave Ovens, 21 CFR 1030.10. In order to comply with microwave-emission-level provisions of the performance standard, manufacturers must use properly calibrated microwave-leakage measurement instruments in their production and quality control testing programs. This document was prepared in order to assist the microwave oven manufacturers in establishing and maintaining a calibration-constancy intercomparison system for compliance survey instruments and replaces guidance previously issued by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (the Center).
