Eurachem updates "Metrological Traceability in Chemical Measurement"

Cover 92x130Eurachem has issued an updated edition of the Eurachem/CITAC Guide "Traceability in Chemical Measurement". The Guide is intended to assist laboratories in meeting the requirements on traceability of results given in ISO/IEC 17025, giving principles and detailed guidance on establishing of metrological traceability in quantitative chemical analysis. Though aimed principally at testing and measurement laboratories, the principles are expected to apply from routine analysis to basic research.

This second edition is a minor revision and amends the Guide to reflect revised terminology introduced in the third edition of the International Vocabulary of Metrology (VIM).

Second edition of "Measurement Uncertainty Arising from Sampling"

Cover Eurachem's Sampling Uncertainty WG  has issued a new edition of the Eurachem/CITAC Guide "Measurement Uncertainty Arising from Sampling".

Sampling often introduces considerable uncertainty. This Guide describes various methods that can be used to estimate the uncertainties arising from the processes of sampling and the physical preparation of samples. It is intended primarily for specialists such as sampling planners and for analytical chemists who need to estimate the uncertainty associated with their measurement results.
