A method for the quantitative determination of the minimum representative sample mass of a solid reference material is described and illustrated. If CRMs are to be used to calibrate microtechniques, the uncertainty which should be assigned to the certified value can also be evaluated. The method is applied to several reference materials which were prepared and certified by the CBNM.
