German term or phrase: Messinstrumente werden auf das Nationale Normale rückgeführt
Zu diesem Zweck werden die Messinstrumente auf das Nationale Normale rückgeführt, um ihre systematischen Messabweichungen zu ermitteln und – soweit möglich – zu korrigieren. Any assistance appreciated!!!!

English translation:Instruments are recalibrated to national standards
Explanation:
If you look at the site cited at the bottom you will find an indepth explanation regarding this both in German and English (Part included below).

Normale are standards.
As for rueckfuehren: See: Fachzeitschriften / QZ Qualität und Zuverlässigkeit / Was ... von Meßergebnissen fordern. Das bedeutet, daß die Meßgeräte über eine Kalibrierkette auf anerkannte Normale rückgeführt, das heißt kalibriert sind. In ... www.hanser.de/zeitschriften-db/QZ/QZ100914.htm


The solution
The best protection from possible liability claims is that both firms – your own firm and the partner firm – voluntarily commit themselves to fulfil the requirements of the same standard. This standard may require, for example, that the measuring instruments used by you for production quality control meet specific accuracy requirements. How do you check this accuracy? By having your measuring instrument calibrated. This can be done in your own laboratory or in another DKD-accredited aboratory, or even directly at PTB when the requirements are extremely high.
What is calibration?
Calibration means the determination of the deviation of the value indicated by the measuring instrument from the correct value of the quantity measured, i.e. the measurand. For this purpose, an object whose values are exactly known – a so-called standard (Normal) – is measured with the instrument to be calibrated, and the deviation of the reading from the known value is determined. The result and the respective uncertainty of measurement are recorded in a calibration certificate.
In a stricter sense calibration only means that your measuring instrument is put to the acid test – that is to say, its measurement error is determined. If the calibration laboratory has been DKD-accredited, this process covers yet another step: your measuring instrument is linked up with the respective "national standard" (nationale Normale) of the measurand in question. This is also referred to as "traceability to the national standard".

Good luck!!

Explanation:
Gauges are interpreted from the national norm/standard in order to determine their systematic drift and - as far as possible - to correct it.

Hope that helps,
