**Linking EUROMET.M.P-K1.a to CCM.P-K4**

The results of EUROMET.M.P-K1.a are linked to those of CCM.P-K4 for 7 pressure nominal values in the range 1 Pa to 1000 Pa, through the common participation of three laboratories: CNR-IMGC, PTB, and NPL.

The CNR-IMGC, however, does not participate in the linking process in the pressure range 100 Pa to 1000 Pa, because it did not use a Static Expansion System for that range of measurements in CCM.P-K4.

The detailed calculation used in the linking process is presented on pages 20 and 21 of the EUROMET.M.P-K1.a Final report.

The degrees of equivalence of laboratories having participated in EUROMET.M.P-K1.a only (plus those of CNR-IMGC in the range 100 Pa to 1000 Pa) relative to the CCM.P-K4 key comparison reference values are obtained from the linking process and are given in table 11 on page 22 of the EUROMET.M.P-K1.a Final Report. |
