Abstract: Comparability of results from different analytical procedures and commercial diagnostic kits is a key issue in laboratory medicine. In order to achieve this, reference procedures and Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) as well as quality control materials are required. In this presentation, the crucial aspects of the development and certification of CRMs will be described and illustrated by recent examples. In particular, establishing the metrological traceability of pure substance CRMs, developing matrix CRMs and investigating the commutability of these materials will be discussed. Finally, a distinction will also be made between Quality Control Materials and Certified Reference Materials in the way they facilitate reliability and traceability of measurement results.
