IntercomparisonsReassure your measurement work by the use of intercomparisons
Intercomparisons is a tool, a method to assure and compare quality and capabilities at a measurement laboratory. ISO standards as well as accreditation bodies urges laboratories to regurlary participate in intercomparisons to demonstrate their performance. But to be able to use the intercomparison for such quality assurance, of course the intercomprison as well must be of a certain quality and it must be easy to understand the result and final outcome.

- 16.30 approximately
CFI, Centre for Intercomparisons is an umbrella organisation to assist calibration- and testing laboratories to secure their measurement claims according to ISO/IEC 17025.
CFI works over a wide area of different measurement quantities, instruments and accuracy levels, and our goal is to assist both measurement laboratories and industrial users. The focus is on traditional "physical" measurements such as mass, electricity, temperature, pressure and similar.
The services offered was originally developed in cooperation between the NMI (National Metrology institutes) in the Nordic and Baltic countries but today include users all over Europe.
CFI is administrated by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden.
