Mechanical Quantities Sector Committee at a glance


The Sector Committee focuses on specialist subjects in the areas of mechanical and acoustic measurands and in the area of flow measurands. It advises DAkkS on the definition of framework conditions for the accreditation of calibration laboratories in these areas in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 1725.

The committee discusses the requirements for technical assessors and technical experts and their appointment, and provides DAkkS with appropriate recommendations. In addition, it draws up subject-related sectoral requirements and accreditation criteria to support the technical assessors. In view of the increased requirements with respect to regular interlaboratory comparisons, the members of the sector committee prepare recommendations for the definition of specific areas of activity within the areas of mechanical, acoustic and flow measurands.


The Sector Committee on Mechanical Quantities is made up of technical DAkkS assessors, representatives of accredited calibration laboratories and representatives of the National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB).
