Accreditation body:

* A CMC (calibration and measurement capability) is the smallest uncertainty (k=2) of measurement that can be expected to be achieved by the RIC during a calibration under normal conditions. This CMC is evaluated by the RIC itself and described in the scope of accreditation of the RIC, if available.
