Abstract
Performa quality assurance system such as applying calibration systems ensures the data will meet defined standards quality with a standard level of confidence.The work represents the way of using the standards to represent the highest level in the traceable chain of calibrations in the environmental monitoring network. The calibration of the Air Quality Monitoring to keep the performance at the confident level 95%; through determining and documenting the deviation of the indication of a measuring instrument from the true value.
