Abstract: Digital transformation activities have been carried out in the field of calibration since 2017, in particularly with the digital calibration certificates (DCCs). From the very beginning, these activities have been designed to cover the entire field of calibration, from NMI to production and across national borders. This philosophy of considering the requirements of all the parties concerned has shaped the history and the roadmap of the DCC, which are described in section 2. At the third international DCC conference, which took place from February 28 to March 2, 2023, and attracted great interest from the community, one of the topics was "DCC and Digitization vs. Digitization & Digital Transformation". This topic will be treated in section 3. As can be seen, the difference between the development step of “DCC & digitization” and the development step of “digitalization & digital transformation” is significant. The benefit that is assumed to arise for the economy as a whole by means of the “digitalization & digital transformation” step is a clear reason in favour of it. An analysis of the presentations held at the third DCC conference confirms this assumption. In this paper, we will show the advantage such a course of action will bring about. In section 4, we will compare the IT technologies that are preferred to achieve the aim of the digital transformation. XML will be contrasted with PDF/A3 and the advantages and disadvantages of both will be discussed.
