i think most manufacturers recomend calibration every twelve months,i have never been asked for calibration cert by assesor but he will want to see your system and records of meter accuracy checks,i.e checkbox ,if system not in place it is a non compliance.you can get it calibrated at most electrical wholesalers.

test equiptment should be calibrated every 12 months but if records are kept of results on a monthly basis you can extend it for 3 years this is my second year with niceic and they told me next inspection they need a calibration cert hope this helps!!

Yep what Sparky says is the same as my last niceic assessor said about calibration. Also, just while we're on the subject, he also confirmed that applied voltage testers with digital/analogue displays don't need to be calibrated.

Hi if you ring Kewtech they charged me £50
 
On my annual visits the NICEIC inspector just seem to be concerned with the regular checkbox records (I use 2 types). If the records are consistent then the need for calibration isn't so obvious. For peace of mind I guess once every 3-4 years would be about right.

My CEF branch doesn't do calibration days in spite of me keep asking.
