Title: Some Developments at NIST on Traceability in Dimensional Measurements
Published: October 01, 2001
Abstract: This paper reports to the international community on recent developments in technical ;policies, programs, and capabilities at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) related to traceability in dimensional measurements. These developments include: formal NIST policies on traceability and assuring quality in the results of the measurements it delivers to customers in calibration and measurement certificates, and a program to support the achievement of traceability to the SI unit of length in dimensional measurements by manufacturers without recourse to an NM1 for dimensional calibrations.
