The National Physical Laboratory is the national measurement institute of the United Kingdom, and currently disseminates diffuse reflectance scales from 320 nm to 56m1. Visible diffuse reflectance and colour measurement was identified as an area where take up of traceability was variable, with sporadic application of best practice in measurement. A case study was therefore conducted into the feasibility of performing monitoring and calibration of colour-measuring spectrophotometers using the internet to communicate between remote sites to improve take up of traceability and measurement good practice. No data correction functionality exists at present. The final objective will be to launch an internet-based, fully accredited measurement service in the area of diffuse reflectance and colour measurement. This paper describes the rationale and functionality of the system resulting from this case study, and makes recommendations on future developments to enhance this type of quality controlltraceability mechanism.
