The key comparison reference value is the BIPM evaluation of absrobed dose to water.

 

BIPM.RI(I)-K4

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 Report.

 

 

Linking SIM.RI(I)-K4 to BIPM.RI(I)-K4

The relative value xi is the comparison result for laboratory i participant in SIM.RI(I)-K4 and was normalized to the value of NRC acting as the linking laboratory (see SIM.RI(I)-K4 Final Report).

The degree of equivalence of each laboratory i participant in SIM.RI(I)-K4 with respect to the key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms both expressed in mGy/Gy: Di = (xi - 1) x 1000 and Ui, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2).

 

 

Linking EUROMET.RI(I)-K4 to BIPM.RI(I)-K4

The relative value xi is the comparison result for laboratory i participant in EUROMET.RI(I)-K4 and is linked to the BIPM.RI(I)-K4 via the nine linking laboratories ARPANSA, BEV, ENEA-INMRI, LNE-LNHB, METAS, MKEH, NRC, PTB and VSL (see EUROMET.RI(I)-K4 Final Report).

The degree of equivalence of each laboratory i participant in EUROMET.RI(I)-K4 with respect to the key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms both expressed in mGy/Gy: Di = (xi - 1) x 1000 and Ui, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2).

 


Linking EURAMET.RI(I)-K4.1 to BIPM.RI(I)-K4

The linking of EURAMET.RI(I)-K4.1 to BIPM.RI(I)-K4 was made via BEV, LNE-LNHB and METAS, having participated in both comparisons.

The degree of equivalence of each laboratory i participant in EURAMET.RI(I)-K4.1 with respect to the key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms both expressed in mGy/Gy: Di = (xi - 1) x 1000 and Ui, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2).

 

Linking EURAMET.RI(I)-K4.2 to BIPM.RI(I)-K4

The linking of EURAMET.RI(I)-K4.2 to BIPM.RI(I)-K4 was made via BEV having participated in both comparisons.

The degree of equivalence of each laboratory i participant in EURAMET.RI(I)-K4.2 with respect to the key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms both expressed in mGy/Gy: Di = (xi - 1) x 1000 and Ui, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2).

 

Linking APMP.RI(I)-K4 to BIPM.RI(I)-K4

The linking of APMP.RI(I)-K4 to BIPM.RI(I)-K4 was made via ARPANSA, NMIJ-AIST and PTB having participated in both comparisons.

The degree of equivalence of each laboratory i participant in APMP.RI(I)-K4 with respect to the key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms both expressed in mGy/Gy: Di = (xi - 1) x 1000 and Ui, its expanded uncertainty (k = 2).


Following decision of the CCRI in 2011, the pair-wise degrees of equivalence are not explicitely published in the KCDB.
