Abstract : The accuracy of the measuring equipment or instruments, which is characterized by the error magnitude of the indicator, serves as the main metrological index of the equipment or instrument. The maintenance of measurement unity, which is a task of national importance, is accomplished by periodically conducted tests and checks on the measuring instruments, which includes first of all an error and stability check of the instrument readings. In practice the following steps are taken: State inspection of equipment manufactured in series; Periodical checks of equipment, released in a serial sequence; State conducted periodical checks of equipment in use; and Periodical spot checks executed by technical control groups in the plants or at their own test laboratories.
