Basic principles of traceability of measurements in and to the SI system in general and for measurements of amount of substance in particular are described. Analogies with long-standing traceability schemes in physical measurements are shown and attempts are made to indicate what, as yet barely existing, traceability of amount (of substance) measurements could be. The recent start of the CGPM/CIPM/CCQM/BIPM involvement in the field of measurements indicated and possible tasks suggested for these scientific (and legal) guards of the international system of measurements SI (Système International).
