Application notes on the assessment of commutability and the selection of RMs published
Two application notes authored by Liesbet Deprez and Giovanni Emma, respectively, have been published:
ERM-Application Note 8: Assessing commutability of reference materials
Commutability is a prerequisite for reference materials (RMs) intended to be used for calibration or quality control of different measurement procedures targeting the same measurand. This application note explains the concept of commutability and clarifies the commutability information provided on the ERM certificates. In addition, this note also describes the most crucial aspects of a commutability study.
ERM-Application Note 9: How to select (certified) reference materials
Reference Materials (RMs) and Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) are limited, sometimes expensive and not always appropriate for allpurposes in a measurement process. This application note aims to acquaint end-users with the selection of the proper (C)RMs, thus supporting their correct use.
Both application notes are available in all official EU languages plus Japanese, Korean and Chinese in the User support section of our online catalogue.
