Evaluating measurement uncertainty for chemical testing laboratories Training course

15 June 2016 09:00 - 16 June 2016 17:00, Teddington, United Kingdom

Measurements are always made for a reason – to answer a particular question or to help solve a problem. Whenever a measurement is made there will always be some uncertainty about the result due to unavoidable errors in the measurement process. Knowledge of the uncertainty associated with measurement results allows a judgement to be made as to whether the data are likely to be ‘fit for purpose’. If comparisons of results are being made, for example when determining whether a limit has been exceeded, a meaningful interpretation of the results can only be achieved if the uncertainty is known. The evaluation of the uncertainty associated with measurement results is a requirement for testing laboratories accredited to ISO/IEC 17025. This course provides a practical approach to evaluating uncertainty in testing laboratories which is in line with the ISO principles for uncertainty estimation and current accreditation requirements. The course assumes no prior knowledge of uncertainty evaluation.
