  • European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (Opens external link in new windowEMPIR)

This project provides a comprehensive set of worked examples illustrating how the principles of measurement uncertainty evaluation can support and give added value to normative and related practices.

It aims to promote the harmonised evaluation of measurement uncertainty according to internationally recognised standards and guides across broad disciplines of measurement.

To achieve this objective the project will deliver new or improved adaptable examples of and templates for uncertainty evaluation to the Joint Committee for Guides in Metrology (Opens external link in new windowJCGM) as publishers of the internationally acknowledged Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement. Further, the project will provide examples to some ten standardisation committees that are specifically related to the standards they are developing. EUROLAB will disseminate project results to national associations, reaching about 2 000 laboratories and conformity assessment bodies with activities in testing, inspection and certification, with about 100 000 members in all. By these means, the project will strongly disseminate good uncertainty evaluation practice to an extremely wide circle of end-users.
