NIST Certificate of Metrological Traceability

LDAF’s Weights and Measures Division recently received a two-year Certificate of Metrological Traceability from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) which ensures that all calibrations performed by the laboratory are traceable to the International System of Units through NIST and that the lab is also competent, impartial, and independent. The State of Louisiana voluntarily participates in this formal evaluation process for the recognition of metrological traceability.

To obtain the certification, LDAF’s Weights and Measures Division must submit their laboratory’s Quality Management System documents, an internal audit, results from the year’s proficiency tests, and all measurement assurance evidence. Depending on NIST’s confidence in laboratory competency and compliance with all standards and requirements associated with state weights and measures laboratory programs, they issue either a one- or two-year Certificate of Metrological Traceability.

Of the 47 state labs in the US, only 22 of them have a two-year certificate, and Louisiana is one of them. LDAF’s lab received a two-year certificate for the first time in 2021, and they have done it again in 2023. We’re proud of this outstanding achievement and will continue to embrace high standards in the work we do every day to protect Louisiana consumers.
