  • Key comparison CCEM-K2

The key comparison reference value is obtained from the weighted average of the DiCOMB's and is xR = 0.346x10-6.
The expanded uncertainty (k = 2) of xR is UR = 0.859x10-6.

The degree of equivalence of each laboratory with respect to the reference value is given by a pair of terms:
Di = DiCOMB - xR and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), Ui = (UiCOMB2 - UR2)1/2.

The degree of equivalence between two laboratories i and j is given by a pair of terms:
Dij = Di - Dj and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), Uij which calculation is described in detail in the CCEM-K2 Final Report.

  • Key comparison EUROMET.EM-K2

The procedure for analysing the results of EUROMET.EM-K2 is explained in Section 6.4 on page 17 of the EUROMET.EM-K2 Final Report.
An EUROMET.EM-K2 reference value and its uncertainty are first computed using results obtained in this key comparison. Degrees of equivalence of each participating laboratory with respect to the EUROMET.EM-K2 reference value, as well as pair-wise degrees of equivalence, are then computed.

  • Linking EUROMET.EM-K2 to CCEM-K2

The linkage of EUROMET.EM-K2 results to those of CCEM-K2 is ensured by the common participation of METAS, PTB, VSL, NPL and VNIIM in both comparisons. The detailed calculation of the linkage is explained in Section 6.6 on page 31 of the Final Report.

  • Linking EURAMET.EM-K2.1 to CCEM-K2

The results of EURAMET.EM-K2.1 are first linked to the EUROMET.EM-K2 reference value through the results of METAS, and then linked to the CCEM-K2 key comparison reference value as done for the EUROMET.EM-K2 results (see Sections 6.3 and 6.4 of the EURAMET.EM-K2.1 Final Report).

This makes it possible to extend the CCEM-K2 degrees of equivalence to those laboratories which participated in key comparisons EUROMET.EM-K2 and EURAMET.EM-K2.1 only.

No pair-wise degrees of equivalence involving EURAMET.EM-K2.1 participants have been computed.

The procedure for analysing the results of SIM.EM-K2 is explained in the Appendix A of the SIM.EM-K2 Final Report.

  • Linking EURAMET.EM-K2.1 to CCEM-K2

The results of EURAMET.EM-K2.1 are first linked to the EUROMET.EM-K2 reference value through the results of METAS, and then linked to the CCEM-K2 key comparison reference value as done for the EUROMET.EM-K2 results (see Sections 6.3 and 6.4 of the EURAMET.EM-K2.1 Final Report).

This makes it possible to extend the CCEM-K2 degrees of equivalence to those laboratories which participated in key comparisons SIM.EM-K2, EUROMET.EM-K2 and EURAMET.EM-K2.1 only.

No pair-wise degrees of equivalence involving EURAMET.EM-K2.1 participants have been computed.
