Reference values

Normally part of the reference conditions of an instrument. See also Values, determined.

Relative error

Error of measurement divided by a true value of the measurand.

Repeatability (of a measuring instrument)

The ability of a measuring instrument to give, under defined conditions of use, closely similar responses for repeated applications of the same stimulus.

Repeatability (of results of measurements)

Closeness of the agreement between the results of successive measurements of the same measurand carried out under the same conditions of measurement.

Repressive measure

(opposite of preventive measure) used in market surveillance to reveal any illegal usage of a measuring instrument.

Reproducibility

(of results of measurements) Closeness of agreement between the results of measurements of the same measurand carried out under changed conditions of measurement.
