The work presented here concerns an intercomparison of electric measurands by calibration of a multifunction transfer standard by participants from different states, and was carried out within the framework of a German project aimed at strengthening and supporting institutions responsible for the field of calibration in their countries. Participation allowed the laboratories taking part the check the correctness and correct traceability of their standards, to demonstrate the equivalence of their calibration certificates, thus establishing confidence in their calibrations. In a first cycle, laboratories from Egypt, the Kingdom of Jordan, Kenya and Turkey took part. Within the scope of a closing seminar held in Cairo in April 1997 reports about the equipment, the results and the estimation of uncertainty of the intercomparison were given and discussed by the participants. In this report the summarized report and the closing reports of the participants concerning their calibrations are reprinted.
