EURACHEM published the third edition of the Eurachem/CITAC Guide "Quantifying Uncertainty in Analytical Measurement". The new version is closely consistent with the second edition, but adds information based on developments in uncertainty estimation and use since 2000.
The additional material provides:
- Improved guidance on the expression of uncertainty near zero
- Improved guidance on the use of Monte Carlo methods for uncertainty evaluation;
- Improved guidance on the use of proficiency testing data
- Improved guidance on the assessment of compliance of results with measurement uncertainty.
The amended guide can be downloaded from the EURACHEM website at www.eurachem.org.
