Here you will find an overview of the applicable standards used in metrology.

DIN 1319-1:1995-01

In this standard, basic terms of metrology are defined, such as Calibration, Adjustment, Hysteresis, Sensitivity, Resolution, Measured Value, Measurement Result, Measurement Deviation, Uncertainty, Relative Uncertainty, Repeat Standard, Standard Deviation, Full Measurement Result, Repeatability Conditions, and Reproducibility Conditions.

DIN 1319-3: 1996-05

Evaluation of measurements of a single measured variable, calculation of the measurement uncertainty for the case where the measured variable is measured directly or is calculated from other quantities by means of a given function.

Terms measured variable, input quantity, result size, model



DIN 1319-4: 1999-02

Evaluation of measurements of several jointly measured quantities. Consideration of assumptions and information of other kind than statistical information.
