The differences between ISO 6789:2003 (withdrawn) and ISO 6789:2017
ISO defines the standards that torque tool calibrations must follow. In 2017, the 2003 standard (ISO 6789:2003) was withdrawn and replaced with the 2017 standard (ISO 6789:2017).
Although the 2003 standard is now classified as ‘withdrawn’, it is still requested by torque tool users and remains widely used by calibration laboratories.
Read on for an explanation of the difference between the standards and how it will affect the type of torque tool calibration your business will need.
