Setting Target Measurement Uncertainty


orange tree trn 180Measurement results are only fit for purpose if the reported uncertainty is correct and has a magnitude small enough for the intended use. The target measurement uncertainty (target MU) is the maximum admissible uncertainty defined for a specific measurement goal. This information leaflet provides a short and accessible introduction to the idea of target measurement uncertainty.

For detailed information on setting a target measurement uncertainty, see the Eurachem/CITAC guide "Setting and Using Target Uncertainty in Chemical Measurement"
