Scope of Accreditation (SoA) is a detailed official statement that certifies a calibration laboratory (CL) for the services it provides. The central part of the accreditation process encompasses the assessment and formulation of the SoA. The traditional workflow for an accreditation process for a CL follows a time-consuming and costly procedure. Also, based on the traditional procedure, the interconnection of the customer, CL, and accreditation body is not entirely traceable. The Measurement Information Infrastructure (MII) working group has done foundational work related to digitalizing the SoA activities. In this article, an editor for SoA that works in the context of MII and together with its software components is presented. Based on the proposed architecture for the Internet of Measurement Things to bring the calibration industry and the Internet of Things together, a proposal for the accreditation process is put forth.
