Instrument calibration is a process to ensure instrument accuracy through documented procedure by comparing the instrument or unit under test (UUT) against traceable reference standard with known uncertainty value.

Calibration by definition does not include accuracy adjustment or trimming, however usually a well established calibration vendor would include such service.

Proper calibration is crucial, providing confidence among users and businesses, ensuring results are accurate and reliable.
