Technical Committee for Metrology in Chemistry

The Technical Committee of Metrology in Chemistry (TC-MC) is a Joint EURAMET-Eurachem Technical Committee. It is concerned with primary methods and reference materials for chemical measurements and research in metrology to support different sectors in chemistry.
The general tasks and areas of common interest are:

  • to develop, improve and apply primary methods and reference materials for chemical measurements
  • to support and act for the development of national and international chemical measurement structures
  • to provide a pragmatic approach to measurement traceability and measurement uncertainty and to establish links to SI where appropriate
  • to undertake regional key comparisons and supplementary comparisons, and to provide links with CCQM
  • to undertake research in metrology, to support different sectors in chemistry
  • to disseminate expertise and knowledge on metrology in chemistry through seminars, guides, conferences, comparisons, etc.
