Eurachem launches survey on metrological traceability

survey100

Eurachem's measurement uncertainty and traceability working group has launched a survey to learn more about how different people view the often difficult topic of metrological traceability. Responses will help Eurachem understand differing views and improve future Eurachem guidance.

Contribute to the survey here: http://bit.ly/EUCHM_TRC_2019

The survey is not limited to analytical chemistry and Eurachem would be pleased to have responses from other areas of measurement.
