The International System of Units, or SI, helps to establish scientifically reliable standards that act as references for the major types of physical measurements in use today.

New White Paper Shows How the Concept of Metrological Traceability 
Contributes to the Reliability of Your Measurements 
 
The international Vocabulary of Metrology (VIM) defines traceability as the property of a measurement 
result whereby the result can be related to a reference through a documented, unbroken chain of 
calibrations. Learn how this traceabilityor lack of itcontributes to measurement uncertainty and more 
in a new, free download from METTLER TOLEDO.   
 
Greifensee, Switzerland – [DATE] – Metrological traceability is the fundamental concept of modern 
measurements. It assures the inter-comparability of measurement results obtained the world over, 
making it a requirement of standards such as ISO 9001, USP, and ISO 17025. 
 
The new METTLER TOLEDO white paper “Metrological Traceability: Consistent Measurement Results” 
explores the definition of metrological traceability and delivers the background material for and benefits of 
the concept. It then gives guidance on how to establish, use and maintain metrological traceability 
long-term.  
 
In short, metrological traceability is a property of the measurement result that is passed along an 
unbroken “traceability chain”. Each link of the chain has its own stated measurement uncertainty, while 
the chain itself typically uses a unit of the International System of Units (SI) as its starting point. 
Traceability is proven through calibration and maintained by proper use of a calibrated instrument.
