You will need a calibration certificate as its your first time therafter its up to whoever you are registered with some require annual calibration others providing you are checking frequently wont worry about the annual calibration

Hey.

I use one of these for checking my instruments along with a dedicated socket in my garage for live tests. If you buy one of these you get a test schedule with it which I then copied onto the PC and adapted it to suit.

Don't forget to test your RCD ranges on your meter. If your socket that you use for loop testing hasn't an RCD then go down to Homebase or similar shed and buy a plug-in RCD to test.

BTW, I've always got measurements for my meters once every month.
