BMTA offers the following comments on the draft UKAS document ‘TPS 72 UKAS Policy on Decision Rules-Pass/Fail Criteria taking Uncertainty of Measurement into Account’. The comments have been collated following a meeting organised by BMTA on 10 July 2019 and are the views of the 25 people representing 17 testing laboratories and 3 calibration laboratories that were present. There was particular concern about the requirement that measurement uncertainties must be included in all laboratory test reports whether the customer wanted them or not.
