UKAS Accredited Laboratory

Accredited Calibration Laboratory No. 0256

The hallmark of Norbar’s high standard of workmanship is clearly seen in the fact that we were the first torque equipment manufacturer to have an in-house UKAS accredited calibration laboratory. We have no intention of resting on our laurels, though, and take pride that we still provide the most comprehensive service available, ensuring we evolve to continue to meet your needs.

Norbar’s laboratory has approval for torques between 0.005 N·m and 108,500 N·m. and operates to BS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005, which sets standards for the technical competence of the laboratory. This should not be confused with laboratories claiming ISO 9001:2008 which relates only to a laboratory's quality management systems.

Norbar’s accreditations

  • UKAS accredited laboratory for torques between 0.005 N·m and 108,500 N·m.
  • UKAS accredited for the calibration of manual torque multiplying gearboxes to 6,800 N·m.
  • UKAS accredited for Voltage calibration of torque display instruments.
  • UKAS accredited for length certification of Norbar calibration beams. 


UKAS is the sole accreditation body recognised by the UK Government to employ internationally recognised standards to assess laboratories that provide test and calibration services. Furthermore, through 'mutual recognition agreements' with other accreditation bodies around the world, provision of a UKAS accredited certificate is internationally recognised as demonstrating the competence, impartiality and performance capability of laboratories. For full details of UKAS, please visit their website.

Use Our Calculators

Norbar has devised easy-to-use online calculators that support the correct application of torque in three key areas:

  1. Unit conversion to assist international measurement definitions.
  2. Torque extension for setting correct values
  3. Torque tension to identify precise levels of torque to be applied for individual applications.
