In accordance with the recent version of ISO 376:2011, the classification of the force transducers is based on the relative errors calculated from the calibration results. This classification approach doesn't take the uncertainty of measurement into consideration. It becomes one of the most important factors that must be utilized when making a classification decision based on of ISO/IEC 17025:2017. In this study a proposed approach for force proving instrument classification was developed. This approach is based on taking into account the calibration results uncertainty of the instruments as a decision rule for classifications. Since the expanded budget uncertainty is a combination of different parameters that may affect the classifications decisions so it is more realistic and more accurate for decision making. The results of this paper demonstrate a recommendation for ISO 376:2011 to modify its classification criteria for the force proving instruments in the upcoming version of this standard.
Key words: Uncertainty / decision rule / compliance statement / force proving instruments / classifications
