The Quality Control process will be moved to a new system in the course of 2023 on an instrument-by-instrument basis.
The current pages will then not be updated any longer.
Calibration data from the Paranal instruments (VLT, VLTI, survey cameras) are processed; their quality is checked
and monitored. If certified, master calibrations are archived and offered to the community for reducing science data.
For selected instruments and instrument modes, science-grade data products created and offered through the Query Pages of the Science Archive.
Find here information about the VLT/ VLTI pipelines.
