U_{i TS}The degree of equivalence of laboratory i participating in this key comparison for the 20 L measurements is then given by a pair of terms, both expressed in relative value: and its expanded uncertainty D_{i }U_{i}_{ }at a ~95 % level of confidence, determined as the arithmetic average of the degrees of equivalence obtained for each individual transfer standard. |

**Linking EUROMET.M.FF-K4 to CCM.FF-K4**

The EUROMET.M.FF-K4 results are linked to those obtained at 100 mL in CCM.FF-K4 with the Transfer standard TS 03.04.03.

The technical protocols and transfer standards of both comparisons are very similar, and INRIM and SP participated in both exercises with comparable performance.

The degrees of equivalence relative to the EUROMET reference value are thus transferred to the key comparison reference value determined in CCM.FF-K4 with slight changes. The resulting values of ** D_{i}**,

**Key comparison SIM.M.FF-K4**

During the comparison, three transfer standards were used, but one of the pycnometers (serial 03.04.15) suffered an irreversible damage; this occurred after INDECOPI tests. Therefore, pycnometer 03.01.15 was tested by CENAM, BSJ, LACOMET, CENAMEP AIP and INDECOPI. This transfer standard was then replaced by pycnometer 03.01.17, which was measured by CENAM, IBMETRO, LATU, INTI and INMETRO.

Degrees of equivalence are computed using results from pycnometer 03.04.04, as it is the only artefact measured by all participants. Only results obtained with this transfer standard are reported here.
