10
CALIBRATION AND MEASUREMENT CAPABILITY
The BIPM/RMO and ILAC/RAB working party has
agreed on
Plus 7 Notes. CIPM will be asked to approve in
November ILAC General Assembly will be asked to
approve in October
11
CIPM MRA, KCDB, publicity, VIM/GUM, SI
  • New free text search engine for the KCDB launched
    last March
  • World Metrology Day
  • - Climate change.
  • - Poster in 11 languages ( with PTB and NMISA)
  • - 2008 theme is metrology and sport
  • Conference on metrology and climate change with
    WMO proposed for 2009
  • VIM3 completed
  • GUM supplement on Monte Carlo methods approved.
  • CCU meeting in June reviewed the SI situation

12
CCUs VIEWS ON WHERE WE COULD BE
A NEW DEFINITION MAY FIX hyperfine splitting of
the Cs atom speed of light the Planck, h the
elementary charge,e the Boltzmann Constant
kB the Avogadro constant NA luminous
efficacy of a specified source
QUANTITY time length mass electric
current thermodynamic temperature Amount of
substance luminous intensity
BASE UNIT second metre kilogram ampere kelvi
n mole candela
Of course, all depends on a resolution of the
current discrepancy between Watt Balance Results
and those from the silicon Avogadro experiments

OUTLINE
  • Review of CMCs and the Monitoring and Reporting
    of the Operation of Quality Systems by
    Intergovernmental Organizations,CIPM 2006-03
  • Criteria for the Selection of Peer-Reviewers for
    NMIs,CIPM 2006-05
  • Guide to the implementation of the CIPM MRA,CIPM
    2007-xx
  • Seminars on the practical aspects of
    participation in the CIPM MRA
  • Action items for the RMOs resulting from the 18th
    JCRB

16
REVIEW OF CMCs AND QS AT IGOs
  • A new policy for the review of quality management
    systems was developed, CIPM 2006-03.
  • It involves the formation of a panel of quality
    experts from all the RMOs.
  • First time used for the IAEA on 5 October 2006.
  • Their quality system was approved by all 4 of the
    RMOs present.
  • The BIPM intends to present its QS to the panel
    in March 2008 - and to make its uncertainties
    more visible on the BIPM web page

17
GUIDE TO THE CIPM MRA
  • The guidelines for the implementation of the CIPM
    MRA are contained in a number of JCRB Guidelines
    and CIPM policies.
  • The everyday use of this material is becoming
    difficult for even everyday users.
  • With the help of PTBs Technical Cooperation, we
    are developing a short new document that
    describes the practical implementation of the
    CIPM MRA for the NMI laboratory staff, CIPM
    2007-xx.
  • The document makes use of hyperlinks to all
    current documents as a means to provide the
    reader with more detail information on any
    subject.
  • The Guide should be available for CIPM approval
    in the third quarter of 2007.
  • An electronic version will be available at the
    BIPM website.

18
SEMINARS ON PARTICIPATION IN THE CIPM MRA
  • Many NMI staff do not understand how to make use
    of the CIPM MRA.
  • This is specially true in NMIs who are yet to
    participate in the CIPM MRA.
  • Their participation would increase the importance
    of the CIPM MRA and could help those NMIs reduce
    TBTs.
  • A series of worldwide seminars are being planned
    to aid new NMIs with their first steps in their
    participation in the CIPM MRA.
  • The seminar will bring together NMI decision
    makers with RMO representatives to develop
    strategies to craft CMCs tables.
  • First workshop Muldersdrift (ZA), May 2-3, 2007.
  • Participants
  • LACOMET (CR), SIM
  • DZM (HR), EUROMET
  • NIS (EG), associate member of SADCMET APMP
  • KazInMetr (KZ), COOMET
  • KEBS (KE), associate member of SADCMET
  • VMI (VN), APMP
  • PTB is to help sponsor this work.

19
ACTION ITEMS RESULTING FROM THE 18th JCRB
  • Action 18/1 RMOs are to develop a process to
    monitor changes to the CMCs from their NMIs after
    the results of a comparison.
  • Action 18/2 RMOs are asked to encourage NMI
    Directors to provided designation information to
    the Director of the BIPM via the form available
    at the BIPM website.
  • Action 18/3 RMOs are asked to remind their
    Technical Committee Chairs of
  • The Executive Secretaries of CCs shall be
    informed in advance of all comparisons using the
    form available in the JCRB website.
  • The Executive Secretaries of CCs shall forward
    these forms to the KCDB Office.
  • Action 18/4 RMOs are asked to remind their NMIs
    and Technical Committee Chairs that they must use
    the get published Excel tables to request
    modifications to existing CMCs.
  • Action 18/5 The JCRB has decided to establish a
    Working Group to revise it rules and procedures.
  • The RMOs are to supply issues for consideration
    to the JCRB Executive Secretary by 3 June 2007.
  • RMOs are to nominate a member of the new Working
    Group by 14 May 2007.
  • The report of the Working Group should be
    available 30 days prior to the September 2007
    meeting so it might be discussed for approval by
    the CIPM in November 2007.

20
CIPM MRA LOGO
  • A logo for the CIPM MRA is now available
    forvoluntary inclusion in the calibration
    certificatesof NMIs and DIs participating in the
    CIPM MRA.
  • The purpose of the Logo is to draw the
    attentionof the customers of NMIs and DIs
    participating in the CIPM MRA,and other
    interested parties, to the recognition by all
    other signatories of the CIPM MRA of the validity
    of the calibration certificates bearing it.
  • A new CIPM document (CIPM 2006-04) describing the
    guidelines for the use of the logo is available
    at the CIPM MRA section of the BIPM website.
  • Only the Directors of the NMIs or DIs interested
    in using the CIPM MRA Logo can request the use of
    the Logo from the Director of the BIPM.
  • The NMIs and DIs duly authorized to use the CIPM
    MRA Logo will be listed in the CIPM MRA section
    of the BIPM website. (authorized 55 laboratories)

21
JCRB EXECUTIVE SECRETARY
  • Pedro Espinas secondment ends in Spring 2008.
  • We have contacted NMI Directors and should be
    able to make an announcement before the end of
    2007
