Abstract

Basic aims and requirements are proposed for protocols of chemical-measurement procedures with traceability to the SI or, where not possible, to units of internationally recognized measurement scales. This research deals with the development and application of protocols for intended in-laboratory, commercial, national or international recognition. Protocols deal with measurement methods, instrumentation and the estimation of uncertainties from all possible sources of measurement errors. A protocol may concern itself with the complex interplay between uncertainties, tolerances, and any limit values introduced by the set aims of specific measurements.
