Abstract: This Guide is a tool for the validation of determined measurement uncertainties. It takes into account the determination of the smallest measurement uncertainty to be specified (best measurement uncertainty in the frame of the Calibration and measurement capability, CMC) as well as the representation of the measurement uncertainty assigned to an actual measurement, which is to be stated in test or calibration certificates. The Guide is intended for calibration and testing laboratories as well as for people preparing measurement uncertainty documentations (management documents). It shows the information to be provided when determining measurement uncertainties. Application-specific particularities that go beyond or deviate from general metrological requirements are addressed by way of example in the checklist. This Guide has been developed in form of a checklist to provide an opportunity for carefully examining the available information, based on the questions asked. The validation of procedures, quality-relevant documents, work aids and software prior to their release and application is a fundamental requirement of all QM systems (management systems). Validations must be documented. The checklist provided by this Guide may constitute such a proof of validation for measurement uncertainties. If a laboratory deals with more than one measurand, a separate checklist for each measurand according to this Guide should be available.
