EUROMET.TK3, EURAMET.TK3.3, EURAMET.TK3.1 and EURAMET.TK3.5
NOMINAL TEMPERATURE : Mercury Triple Point, 234.3156 K
For each fixedpoint temperature, the difference (T_{R}  T_{P}) between the EUROMET reference value, T_{R}, and T_{P}, is computed as the weighted mean of all participants' results (T_{i}  T_{P}), with weights inversely proportional to u_{iP}, as explained in Section 8.1 of the Final Report. 
For each fixedpoint temperature, the degree of equivalence of laboratory i with respect to the EUROMET reference value is given by a pair of terms, both expressed in mK: D_{i} = (T_{i}  T_{R}), obtained from the differences relative to the Pilot Laboratory 
For each fixedpoint temperature, the degree of equivalence between two laboratories i and j is given by a pair of terms, both expressed in mK: D_{ij} = D_{i}  D_{j}, and U_{ij}, its expanded uncertainty at a 95 % level of confidence. The computation of U_{ij} between participants in the same loop, and participants in different loops is explained in Sections 11.1 and 11.2 of the Final Report. 
The Pilot Laboratory and the five CoPilots have participated in both comparisons.
The comparison of their averaged results in both exercises shows that they perform equally within 0.1 mK for all temperatures, except for the Zinc fixedpoint temperature (0.23 mK) and the Tin fixedpoint temperature (0.14 mK), as explained in Section 10.1 of the Final Report.
The uncertainty linked with the reproducibility between both exercises in also computed (see Table 28 on page 60 of the Final Report) and taken into account for the estimation of the pairwise degrees of equivalence between participants in EUROMET.TK3 and CCTK3 (see Section 11.3 of the Final Report).
For each fixedpoint temperature, the BIPM key comparison database displays the degrees of equivalence relative to the EUROMET reference value, and the pairwise degrees of equivalence computed inside the EUROMET key comparison.
The LACOMET results obtained in EURAMET.TK3.3 are linked to the results of EUROMET.TK3 and CCTK3 using the participation of CEM in EUROMET.TK3, whose results are linked to those of CCTK3, as described above.
The BIM results obtained in EURAMET.TK3.1 are linked to the results of EUROMET.TK3 and CCTK3 using the participation of VSL in EUROMET.TK3.
The ROTH+CO.AG results obtained in EURAMET.TK3.5 are linked to the results of EUROMET.TK3 and CCTK3 using the participation of VSL in EUROMET.TK3.
This makes it possible to extend the EUROMET.TK3 graphs of equivalence with LACOMET, BIM and ROTH+CO.AG results.

The LACOMET results obtained in EURAMET.TK3.3 are linked to the results of EUROMET.TK3 and CCTK3 using the participation of CEM in EUROMET.TK3, whose results are linked to those of CCTK3, as described above.
The BIM results obtained in EURAMET.TK3.1 are linked to the results of EUROMET.TK3 and CCTK3 using the participation of VSL in EUROMET.TK3.
The ROTH+CO.AG results obtained in EURAMET.TK3.5 are linked to the results of EUROMET.TK3 and CCTK3 using the participation of VSL in EUROMET.TK3.
This makes it possible to extend the EUROMET.TK3 graphs of equivalence with LACOMET, BIM and ROTH+CO.AG results.
LACOMET and BIM degrees of equivalence relative to the CCTK3 ARV are given on page 17 of the EURAMET.TK3.3 Final Report and on pages 10 and 11 of the EURAMET.TK3.1 Final Report, respectively.
The computation of ROTH+CO.AG degrees of equivalence relative to the CCTK3 ARV is explained in Section 8.1 of the EURAMET.TK3.5 Final Report.
