    Good day all;
    In my past experiences with ISO 17025 accredited laboratories, we identified and documented measurement uncertainty for all measurements except those which participated in a collaborative lab program. My memory fails me as to why we were "allowed" to do this. Any thoughts?

    Are you thinking "round robin" type standards, John?

    Yep, like CTS, which provides a scatter graph result of where a given lab’s result fall compared to the other participants.

    Then the uncertainty should be pretty much the same in that case? Same artifact, method, conditions etc.
