From the date of purchase your AVD gauge(s) is calibrated for a one-year period. After this period, we offer recalibration services which certifies gauges for a further one year period.
Unless your unit has a fixed gauge there is no need to return the full AVD kit, only the gauge and coupler.
The cost for calibration below does not include shipping cost to VERI5000 however, VERI5000 will cover the cost of shipping the newly calibrated gauge back to the customer.

Any additional parts needing replacement will be advised and the cost agreed upon so that work can be carried out. In the situation that a gauge fails calibration, the cost of calibration will be applied to the cost of a new gauge.
VERI5000™ requires the user to read the manual in its entirety prior to use of the equipment. User should wear appropriate personal protective equipment when performing a proof-test. After each proof test a Competent Person or person who has been trained as a Competent Equipment Inspector must inspect the equipment for cracking, breaking, or permanent deformation of the structure and equipment (OSHA 1910.66 and 1926.502) If the Equipment Inspector or Competent Person is inspecting another manufacturers product that he or she has not been trained on, they must refer to the manufacturer’s instruction manual for the proper inspection of the anchor. Some anchors may deform during a proof-test and still hold, therefore meeting their intended purpose. Please consult the Manufacturer of the anchor with any questions on the product and as always, remove any deformed anchors from use. When choosing what to proof-test to, picking the lowest force that meets the requirements will greatly reduce the risk of breaking, cracking or deforming anchors. Pulling anchors to the maximum of 5000lbs may deform the anchor. VERI5000 and or Hydrajaws are not responsible for any damage to the structure being tested.
