Is it necessary to do MSA every time after regular calibration?

    My organization determine MSA frequency once/year regardless calibration frequency.
    However, one of my customer sent the MSA requirement defining that the "MSA frequency shall be aligned with calibration frequency".
    Please advise if it is necessary to do so. I think it is not necessary since the measuring equipment is the same, measurement method is the same.

    If it is a docuemnted Custoerm requirement then it is a requirement.
    however in the published standards and by just plain common sense (if you know what an MSA is for) then there is no overarching requirement. even doing it once a year is uneccessarry...

    Thanks Bev, you always provide me a great help.
    This is requirement defined in quality agreement but I have not yet accepted and I will continue working out with customer to waive this requirement.

    Or as Andy suggested charge them more for it as it is a useless requirement. It’s just busy work.
