Since 1979 Kolb & Baumann GmbH & Co. KG has been running a calibration laboratory accredited to DIN ISO/IEC 17025. From 1979 to March 2011 the calibration laboratory had been accredited by the German Calibration Service (DKD) under No. DKD-K-01301.
As from 29.03.2011 the calibration laboratory will continue as a DAkkS-laboratory under No. D-K-15077-01-00.
The corresponding EU (European Union) regulation has been executed and the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) now is the only legal calibration body of the Federal Republic of Germany. All former accreditation bodies have been taken over by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH.
Originally the accreditation merely comprised gauge blocks, being the most important material measure for traceability of the unit length. In course of years demands on calibration of test bodies were substantially extended with regard to the quality assurance standards ISO 9000, QS 9000 and VDA 6. According to this development also KOBA has reasonably extended the range of accreditation and today is in a position to carry through DAkkS calibration for the most important test bodies.
For calibration requirements beyond our accreditation we cooperate with the most competent and qualified DAkkS calibration laboratories.
