The IET Code of Practice for In-service Inspections and Testing of Electrical Equipment (4th Edition) states that "The accuracy of a test instrument be verified annually or in accrodance with the manufacturer's instructions." 

"Such machine testing should be carried out by a formal calibration house, and the testing of the test leads should be assessed at the time of calibration."
