The workshop was attended by twenty persons representing a cross-section of organizations of the type with strong institutional interests in the issue. The dissemination of information about the new requirement of traceability for statements of uncertainty and a role for NIST in facilitating, leading, or providing an element of the education, training, or dissemination of information regarding traceability and measurement uncertainty associated with that need.
