Abstract: The national primary standard of the PIB with its extrapolation chambers and associated equipment is described. The evaluation procedure including all the corrections of the measured values is discussed in detail. Measurement uncertainties are stated for beta ray sources of the radionuclides (90Sr + 90Y), 204Tl, and 147Pm. An intercomparison with the NPL of beta ray sources of these radionuclides shows that the results agree within the uncertainties claimed.
