The certification for all SRM neutral density filters expires after two years. We maintain a program to recertify such filters produced by us. Filters returned for recertification are measured in the "as received" condition, taken apart and carefully cleaned, and then a final recertification measurement is made. The filters are returned to the customer with a "Report of Recertification" that serves as a replacement for the original certificate. The report contains the "as received" data as well as the new certification data, to permit the customer to evaluate the performance of the filters during the prior certification period.
You may choose one of three ways to provide the required information:
Your filters will be returned only after we receive the required information in one of the above ways. The average turnaround time is four weeks.
Below is the bank information you will need if you intend to pay by wire transfer.
Our account number and name are of critical importance and must be referenced in order for NIST to be properly credited with your payment. It must appear in the precise manner shown to allow for the automated processing and classification of the funds transfer message.
The purchase order number, your country, and the words "Recertification of optical filters: contact Melody Smith, ext. 8534" must also appear on the transfer paperwork.
This transfer of funds can only be accomplished by your company going through a U.S. correspondent bank or by having your country's central bank send a swift telecommunication system message to the federal reserve bank.
Be sure to pay for any processing fees your bank may include.
