Abstract

Basic principles of traceability of measurements associated with the Système International (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. Possible tasks are suggested for the scientific (and legal) guards of the international system of measurements, SI.
