  2. to provide input into the development of a CCQM strategic plan and develop and maintain a work plan consistent with the strategic plan adopted by the CCQM;
  3. to evaluate new measurement technologies for their use in the value assignment of measurement standards
  4. to interface with other CCQM WGs and international stakeholder organizations working on measurands covered by the working group;
