The calibrations and measurements made by SCL are metrologically traceable to the International System of Units (SI).
SCL has set up primary measurement standards in some of its measurement fields. Primary measurement standards may be primary realisations of the SI units or agreed representations of the SI units based on fundamental physical constants. These primary measurement standards provide the ultimate metrological traceability to the SI for the reference measurement standards and measuring equipment used by SCL in the respective fields.
For measurement fields where primary measurement standards have not yet been set up, SCL sends the appropriate reference measurement standards to overseas primary measurement standards laboratories of recognised international repute and authority, such as NPL of UK, NIST of USA, PTB of Germany, for regular recalibration in order to provide traceability to the SI. In a few special cases, reference measurement standards derive metrological traceability through other overseas accredited calibration laboratories.
To ensure that the measurement standards established in SCL are in harmony with those established elsewhere, SCL participates in inter-laboratory comparisons of measurement standards whenever opportunity arises.
Details on metrological traceability of SCL's measurements in various fields are available.
