“To measure is to know” Lord Kelvin said. But how well are you measuring and do you measure in the right way? A simple way to check the quality of your measurement is to attend in intercomparisons. Participating in an intercomparison can be a simple and powerful way to verify a measurement capability and it is the most effective way to find out how well one measures. CFI is a cooperation between the NMIs (National Metrology institutes) in Nordic countries aimed at providing intercomparisons for secondary laboratories. We intend to present our experiences when offering intercomparisons world-wide and connecting with other services in Europe. Our major areas are so far: electrical, force, length, mass, pressure, vacuum and temperature but the range will be modified due to the stakeholders demands.
