This course provides participants with the theoretical basis for the estimation of measurement uncertainty and establishment of traceability. Measurement uncertainty and traceability are essential for the evaluation of measurement results.

Reference materials are key tools for achieving traceability of measurements, proving the accuracy of methods and demonstrating the proficiency of laboratories. This knowledge is applied to the proper selection and use of reference materials.
