Problems related to the use of the concept of measurement uncertainty in different types of metrological problems, such as calibration, type evaluation, and the verification of measuring instruments are considered. A classification of risks in the assessment of the correspondence of measuring instruments to specific requirements is presented. Examples of conformity decision rules used in verification of measuring instruments are presented and the role of measurement uncertainty in these rules is demonstrated.

Keywords
