Review Paper

The articles in this and the previous issue of ACQUAL (Accred Qual Assur 8:10) originate from the Consultative Committee for Amount of Substance (CCQM) Workshop on Traceability held at the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) in April, 2002. Not all of the workshop presentations have been submitted for inclusion in these special issues. However, some articles which were not presented at the workshop but which focus on the same topic have been included.

As described by BIPM in the introduction to the workshop programme, the aim of the workshop was to provide a clear description of how metrological traceability can be disseminated to “field” laboratories at the routine working level. The current situation was described from the viewpoint of metrologists, and society, regulators and industry.

The contributors to the workshop were requested to tackle such questions as:

What does traceability mean to you?


How do you ensure traceability?


How do you disseminate traceability?
