The meaning of calibration in general and in the field of isotopic measurements in particular is described, stressing the fundamental difference between calibration as an aim and tools to achieve calibration. The role of proper uncertainty budgeting as a prerequisite for establishing a calibration curve is explained. It leads to the recommendation, that the quality of the uncertainty statement should have a large weight when ranking or judging isotopic measurement results evaluated by CAWIA.
