This report describes the characterisation of a plutonium dioxide powder reference material with accurately determined plutonium mass fraction for elemental analysis. This material is intended to replace EC-NRM 201, the plutonium metal reference material, stock of which is exhausted. The plutonium measurements were performed by three different laboratories, each applying a different oxydo-reductive method. The results of this work, the statistical evaluation of the uncertainty in the certified value and data relating to the impurity content are presented.
