our comprehensive range of certified test
equipment, our technicians will visit your
plant and calibrate your instruments in
accordance with the calibration programme
set out. Calibrations are carried out using
HCS standard operating procedures and certificates

been in the business since 1992, we have
developed a vast amount of experience in
this field and our staff are more than willing
to advise on any issues relating to calibration

and Maintenance contracts:
HCS have set up a number of Calibration & Maintenance
contracts with clients. These contracts are based
on a fixed price per calibration to allow for
easy budgeting. Each contract is designed to suit
the needs of the client, taking into account production
downtime, frequencies, tolerances, accuracies
etc. They are flexible to allow ongoing changes
in terms of workscope and often involve regular
update and assessment meetings.
Hire of technical personnel. In recent
times a number of clients have moved from
in-house calibration and maintenance to
outsourcing these functions, allowing
them time to focus on their core skills.
currently have instrument technicians
and instrument engineers on short and
long term hire to a number of high profile
pharmaceutical and biotec sites.
HCS have been involved in a number of commissioning
projects from initial start up to hand over
stage. This has involved the installation,
set up and calibration of instrumentation
on a wide variety of different processes.

Accuracy, Frequency) HCS provide a consultation
service to access the classification of
instrumentation in terms of criticality.
This involves the determination of accuracies
and frequencies as well as a rational backup.
standard operating procedures for maintenance

written on the customer site and involve
the input and cooperation of the personnel

up of calibration management system involving
the generation of instrument lists, files,
tagging and reminder systems. Implementing
and the provision of training on these systems.
HCS provides a temperature mapping service
for the purpose of profiling an item or
area over a specified time period. Using
CFR compliant software recording systems,
we can provide a complete report package
satisfying regulatory requirements for IQ,
PQ and general validation requirements.
Where required we can write the protocol
necessary to carry out the tests.
