In order to develop a dielectric Standard Reference Material (SRM), a measurement system for measuring the relative permittivity and loss tangent of dielectric materials is presented. To achieve the necessary level of measurement accuracy, we selected the circular-cylindrical cavity method. Expressions for determining the relative permittivity and loss tangent are derived from theoretical models of an empty and sample-loaded circular-cylindrical cavity. We preent a description of the circular-cylindrical cavity's specifications in addition to the detailed measurement procedure we employed. We present a comprehensive uncertainty analysis for both the relative permittivity and loss tangent as well as a measurement assurance plan for ensuring the integrity of the measurment system.
