I'm advising an A4 in the front of the ring binder you keep your certificates in.

Sounds like a good idea. With the removal of regulation by comp1 on calibration certs I bet some AE's may be tempted to "forget" about some of the required calibrations.

I agree as they are all together, but it is entirely up to the individual AE how it is done as long as it is done.

Hi Arthur.
One of the ways would be to make a chart to list when calibrations were done, day, date, equipment etc and keep it up to date and put it with your certificates. It's called quality management now and it's to show that you are keeping good records should you get a site assessment.


There's one on the Web if you know where to look.

So where do we keep a record of it. We have a fileing system for the paper copy already.

From DVSA.

Equipment calibration

You no longer need to record equipment calibrations on the new MOT testing service, but you must still:
•record the calibration of your equipment
•keep the related certificates and documents as proof for future site assessments

Vehicle examiners (VEs) will ask you to show these certificates as part of your site assessments.

I am led to believe that the system is being released to a VERY basic specification. i.e you can send back test results and that's about it. (At least this should get it up and running with as few a problems as possible).

As I understand it adding equipment, calibrations and many other features, will be included in due course after the full September rollout is completed.

However I do suggest a quick call to your local office to confirm my understanding iscorrect... My comments are based only on what I've heard during approval meetings.
