New calibration manual hits the street.

The new NAVAIR 17-35FR-06, Facility Requirements for Navy and Marine Corps Calibration Laboratories, has been released. It supercedes the NAVAIR 17-35FR-01, 02, 03, 04, and 05 series manuals. This new version compiles the old manuals and offers new updates and changes to calibration-facility requirements. The new pub currently is available to all cal labs with an account at the METCAL website (https://metcal.corona.navy.mil). If you download the manual, make sure the CTPL is notified so the pub can be added to your workcenter's technical-publication list. This manual is not available from the NATEC website.

The updated pub includes overall laboratory-design requirements and environmental controls, including particle contamination and the usual humidity and temperature requirements. The calibration-area tables have sections for AC and DC, physical and mechanical, dimensional and optical, including fiber-optic standards. The appendices cover applicable instructions, MIL standards, and references for calibration. They also provide general and utility requirements for ships and mobilemaintenance facilities.

I recommend all cal labs obtain and read this manual to make sure the new procedures and requirements concerning calibration facilities are reviewed and implemented.
