Legislation covering CO2 and fuel consumption reduction are imminent, with stricter requirements concerning the measurement uncertainty of fuel consumption. QUALITY STANDARDS The traceability required by the established quality assurance standards, such as ISO 9001 for measuring instruments in production and development requires measurement equipment / 130 to be calibrated on a regular basis. ACCREDITATION Measurement uncertainty and the evidence of traceability can now be established in the best way by the manufacturers of measurement equipment in the form of so-called factory calibrations, or in the context of tests, in accredited laboratories. In this case state accreditation offices initially audit and accredit laboratories for their quality assurance processes and their actual measurement quality. Regular post audits, ensure that the measurement uncertainty stated by the laboratory is complied with. These audits are performed in accordance with ISO 17025. Besides such audits, the measurement quality is also checked in regular round-robin tests carried out among the laboratories. AVL FUEL MEASUREMENT DEVICES AVL has been accredited for the calibration of “liquid media”. Standard calibrations for AVL Fuel Measurement Devices such as FuelExact or Fuel Reference are performed on an accredited AVL calibration bench, whereby the traceability to international measurement standards are assured and the specified measurement uncertainty is met.
