Precision measurement is important in research, development and innovation. Accurate devices are essential for the safe production of products and the provision of many services across electrical, mechanical and industrial industries. The RS calibration service makes sure the equipment you have or any new instruments you buy are accurate to international standards. From thermometry to test meters and measuring devices, you can be confident your equipment is compliant.

We have two services. Our RS standard certification gives traceability to national standards. Our UKAS accreditation gives an international recognised industry mark of quality

How does it work?
