Abstract

A comparison has been carried out in which ten Western European national metrology institutes have determined the mass difference between a pair of 1 kg mass standards and assigned mass values to each of the weights. The results obtained illustrated that the measurements of the participants agree to within their quoted uncertainties (for a coverage factor k=2), so demonstrating the metrological equivalence of mass measurements using stainless steel 1 kg standards in each of these institutes.
