It should be applied to all instruments delivered to the organization from an outside supplier and allocated to individual stations in the network through the station network management unit. III–7 PART III Constant efforts must be made to introduce improvements in the quality, performance and price competitiveness of the various supplies. In the case of equipment, the search for improved ideas and means is very important. Perishable items should be stocked properly and used regularly. Where items such as meteorological balloons or batteries are concerned, quality tests should be made from time to time.

If faults are discovered or suspected, the unit should be notified immediately. Depending on the nature of the fault and the type of station, the unit will decide whether the instrument is to be changed or a field repair carried out. The station inspector shall assist the unit in keeping the instruments in the best possible working order and in carrying out periodic intercomparisons with national standards. 12 Coordination In addition to the circulation of inspection reports within the divisions or sections concerned and the notification of discrepancies or likely errors in the observational data, close coordination between the various users of the observational data in other branches of the organization and the unit should be arranged.
