Calibration - Calibration In Lieu Of Calibration Verification

Is semiannual calibration verification required if the laboratory is performing calibration at least once every six months?  

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only
Semiannual calibration verification is not required when the laboratory performs a calibration protocol using 3 or more levels of calibration materials that include a low, mid, and high value at least once every 6 months. After calibration, quality control should be performed and documented to verify the calibration protocol was successful.  Please see 'Note 1' and 'Note 2' at QSA.02.03.01 EP 3 in the Quality System Assessment chapter of the Laboratory Accreditation Manual for additional information regarding calibration verification.
