Note:  The presence of equipment alone does not indicate a satisfactory situation.  Assessors must evaluate the equipment design, calibration, uncertainty and documentation to ensure compliance with the directions of the standard.  The requirements of ISO Guide 25 regarding validation are applicable, as the tests of this standard are not standardized tests.
