The KCDB - the BIPM key comparison database – supports the CIPM MRA. The KCDB contains information on the internationally recognized Calibration and Measurement Capabilities (CMCs) for services available from the participating institutes, and the key and supplementary comparisons supporting these CMCs.

All data listed in the KCDB have been reviewed and approved within the CIPM Mutual Recognition Arrangement
- CMC Quick search
- CMC Advanced search

In the CMCs uncertainty statements, the notation Q[*a*, *b*] stands for the root-sum-square of the terms between brackets: Q[*a*, *b*] = [*a*^{ 2} + *b*^{ 2}]^{1/2}

*Unless otherwise stated the expanded uncertainties given below correspond to **k* = 2 (at a 95 % level of confidence)
