Calibration and Inspection of Garages

Calibration and Inspection of Garages

The quality of measuring equipment and tools for car maintenance and repair is essential to ensure proper maintenance and safety of the work. Thanks to calibration and inspection of work/measuring equipment, the correctness of the measurements is guaranteed.

Specific quality requirements often apply for the execution of the work, in particular in order to meet the requirements for the quality or safety of a particular product. These include quality requirements as laid down in the Dutch motor vehicle inspection regulations, ISO 9000 standards, and brand-specific criteria.

Kalibra can help you calibrate measuring instruments that are used for the maintenance of cars. Kalibra also performs inspections of work equipment. Both according to quality assurance requirements, of course.

Calibration Measuring Instruments

Kalibra calibrates measuring instruments in automotive workshops, such as:

  • Torque wrenches (used for tightening bolts and nuts)

  • Geometric measuring instruments (for measuring internal and external dimensions)
  • Thermometers (measurement of the temperature of the engine)
  • Headlight adjustment devices (used when adjusting the headlights)

Kalibra can also assist you in this work with consultancy.

  • Electric hand tools (according to the NEN 3140 standard)
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Ladders and stairs
  • Portable climbing equipment
  • First aid kits and hoses

Kalibra can also assist you in this work with consultancy.

Calibration and Validation by Kalibra

All work will be performed on location. It can be performed in our mobile measuring chambers. All work/measuring instruments can be calibrated and inspected within a limited turnaround time (in practice from 0.5 to 1 working day). Several activities can be combined in succession, so that the number of suppliers remains limited for the various activities. Your benefit: equipment does not have to be shipped, and you don’t have to arrange any replacement equipment.

Kalibra specialises in performing accredited calibrations. We work entirely in accordance with the internationally recognised ISO 17025 standard for quality assurance in calibration institutions. Kalibra is not a supplier of equipment. This guarantees the objectivity of measurements and services.

Kalibra specialises in calibrations and validations. In addition, we also perform (metrological) inspections. Our services at a glance:


Calibration is the comparison of a measured value using a measuring system with an actually measured value with a standard to determine the deviation.


Validation of critical facilities, spaces, instruments, and equipment provides insight into whether requirements are met, and therefore whether an object is suitable for the intended goal.


Metrological inspection involves testing whether a measuring instrument complies with metrological legislation. Kalibra is a formal inspection body. We carry out inspections as an independent institution. A metrological inspection guarantees objectivity and expertise.

Calibration of Measuring Instruments

Kalibra is an expert in the field of different types of calibrations. We can calibrate both individual measuring equipment as well as permanently installed measuring equipment in the production process.


Trained and experienced Kalibra employees are available on call for a either a short or longer period. Even a couple of days a year is possible.


When it comes to calibrations and validations, our consultancy services can always provide you with advice and guidance. After all, before any inspections are performed, it is important that the starting points and test criteria are well defined.
