Calibration is defined as an operation that establishes a relationship between the quantity values provided by measurement standards and corresponding indications. The calibration itself is always a snapshot establishing a relationship between the measured quantity and a reference value at the time of calibration. Strictly speaking, the results of a calibration alone do not mean a statement can be made about the quality of the measurement results in the past, or about future measurement results. Nevertheless, calibrations are recognized as an important evaluation criterion of measurement devices and are required in all common quality management systems for test equipment.
