The BIPM KCDB office has published the first CMC that has been submitted, reviewed, approved and published entirely using the recently-launched KCDB 2.0.
A significant milestone was achieved for the BIPM and the KCDB 2.0 on 2 April 2020 with the publication of a CMC for gravimetry from CENAM (Mexico). This represents the first CMC that has been submitted, reviewed and approved entirely using the new KCDB web platform (KCDB 2.0). Whilst the BIPM has published many sets of CMCs in the past weeks (and continues to do so), they were sets that had been reviewed using the old JCRB web facility, and post-processed by the KCDB Office for publication on the new platform. This first publication clearly demonstrates the potential of the new system. The CMC was created and submitted for intra-regional review on 26 February 2020. Having completed the SIM review and being subjected to inter-regional review, it was approved and published just five weeks later on the KCDB on 2 April 2020.
