comparability of measurement results, for quantities of a given kind, that are metrologically traceable to the same reference


EXAMPLE Measurement results, for the distances between the Earth and the Moon, and between Paris and London, are metrologically comparable when they are both metrologically traceable to the same measurement unit, for instance the metre.

NOTE 1 See Note 1 to 2.41 metrological traceability.

NOTE 2 Metrological comparability of measurement results does not necessitate that the measured quantity values and associated measurement uncertainties compared be of the same order of magnitude.
