Traceability in Chemical Measurement (2003)

NOTE: This version of "Traceability in Chemical Measurement" has been superseded by the Second Edition, published in 2019. The second edition can be found here.


This Guide gives detailed guidance for the establishment of measurement traceability in quantitative chemical analysis, based on the definition in the international vocabulary of basic and general terms in metrology (VIM). Though it is aimed principally at testing and measurement laboratories carrying out chemical measurement, the principles are expected to apply from routine analysis to basic research. The document is also intended to assist laboratories in meeting the requirements on traceability of results given in ISO 17025.
