The inherent difficulties of measurements in Chemistry and Biology make it necessary to open discussion forums specially devoted to the bench level work. This document deals with the application of metrology in Chemistry and Biology from a practical point of view. The underlying aims of this document are to help analysts working at chemical or biological laboratories to establish pathways and tools to pursue in a practical way traceability in these fields and to deal with several highly relevant key words of metrology in Chemistry and Biology (traceability, validation, calibration, etc). This document also tries to provide orientations to the European Commission about the specific problems of metrology in Chemistry and Biology in order to guide future actions.
