The key comparison reference value is the BIPM evaluation of air kerma.

 

BIPM.RI(I)-K1

The degree of equivalence of each laboratory i with respect to the key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms both expressed in mGy/Gy:
the relative difference Di and Ui, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), with Ui = 2ui.

When required, the degree of equivalence between two laboratories i and j can be evaluated by a pair of terms both expressed in mGy/Gy:

Dij = Di - Dj  and Uij  , its expanded uncertainty (k = 2). The approximation for Uij is explained in section 5 of the Final Reports (available from the "Participant" tab).
