The key comparison reference value, x_{R}, is evaluated as the median of the x_{i} values. Its standard uncertainty is denoted u_{R}, see Appendix 1 of the CCM.MK2 Final Report. x_{R} = 0.03 mg and u_{R} = 0.12 mg 
The degree of equivalence of each laboratory with respect to the reference value is given by a pair of terms: D_{i} = (x_{i}  x_{R}) and U_{i}, its expanded uncertainty (at a 95% level of confidence), both expressed in mg. Detailed information on the evaluation of U_{i} may be found in Section 5 of the CCM.MK2 Final Report. 
The degree of equivalence between two laboratories is given by a pair of terms: D_{ij} = D_{i}  D_{j} = (x_{i}  x_{j}) and U_{ij}, its expanded uncertainty (at a 95% level of confidence), both expressed in mg. Detailed information on the evaluation of U_{ij} may be found in Section 6 of the CCM.MK2 Final Report. 
The linking process is explained in Appendix A of the EUROMET.M.MK2 Final Report.
he degree of equivalence of each laboratory i participant in EUROMET.M.MK2 with respect to the CCM.MK2 key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms: D_{i} and U_{i}, its expanded uncertainty (at a 95% level of confidence), both expressed in mg. These are computed as explained in Appendix A of the EUROMET.M.MK2 Final Report. 
The degrees of equivalence between any of the laboratories participating in EUROMET.M.MK2 and those participating in CCM.MK2 are not computed. The pairwise degrees of equivalence inside EUROMET.M.MK2 are given in Table 6 to 10 of the EUROMET.M.MK2 Final Report. 
The linking process is explained in Appendix A of the EUROMET.M.MK2.1 Final Report.
The degree of equivalence of each laboratory i participant in EUROMET.M.MK2.1 with respect to the CCM.MK2 key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms: D_{i} and U_{i}, its expanded uncertainty (at a 95% level of confidence), both expressed in mg. These are computed as explained in Appendix A of the EUROMET.M.MK2.1 Final Report. 
The degrees of equivalence between any of the laboratories participating in EUROMET.M.MK2.1 and those participating in CCM.MK2 are not computed. The pairwise degrees of equivalence inside EUROMET.M.MK2.1 are given in Table 7 to 11 of the EUROMET.M.MK2.1 Final Report. 
The linking process is explained in section 7.3 of the APMP.M.MK2 Final Report.
The degree of equivalence of each laboratory i participant in APMP.M.MK2 with respect to the CCM.MK2 key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms: D_{i} and U_{i}, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), both expressed in mg. These are computed as explained in section 7.3 of the APMP.M.MK2 Final Report. 
The degrees of equivalence between two laboratories participating in APMP.M.MK2 is given by a pair of terms both expressed in mg: D_{ij} = D_{i } D_{j}, and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2) U_{ij}. The pairwise degrees of equivalence between any of the laboratories participating in APMP.M.MK2 and those participating in CCM.MK2 are not computed. 
The link is made through the EUROMET.M.MK2 key comparison using EIM results in both comparisons (see Section 7 of the EURAMET.M.MK2.3 Final Report).
The pairwise degrees of equivalence inside EURAMET.M.MK2.3 are given in Table 5 of the EURAMET.M.MK2.3 Final Report. 
The link is made through the results of the PTB having participated in both comparisons CCM.MK2 and EURAMET.M.MK2.5
(see page 6 of the EURAMET.M.MK2.5 Final Report).
No pairwise degrees of equivalence involving EURAMET.M.MK2.5 participants have been computed.

MEASURAND : Mass
NOMINAL VALUE : 10 kg
x_{(rep)i} : reported result obtained as the difference between the measurement of the mass standard carried out by laboratory i and its nominal value
u_{i }: combined standard uncertainty of x_{(rep)i}
Three sets of mass standards, designated as CA, CB and CC, were circulated.
For each set of mass standards the Pilot Laboratory, PTB, carried out two measurements: the first one before the circulation and the second one after the circulation, as indicated respectively by (1) and (2).
x_{i} : difference between the mass determined by laboratory i, x_{(rep)i}, and that determined by the Pilot Laboratory.
The Pilot's mass value is the average of the two results obtained before and after the circulation.
