Vocabulary for Nominal Properties and Nominal Examinations — Basic and General Concepts and Associated Terms

Scientists of disciplines in clinical laboratory sciences have long recognized the need of a common language for efficient and safe request of investigations, report of results, and communication of experience and scientific achievements. Widening the scope, most scientific disciplines, not only clinical laboratory sciences, rely to some extent on various nominal examinations in addition to measurements. The “International vocabulary of metrology—Basic and general concepts and associated terms” is designed for metrology, the science of measurement. The aim of the proposed vocabulary is to suggest definitions and explanations of concepts and terms related to nominal properties, i.e. properties that can be compared for identity with other properties of the same kind-of-property, but have no magnitude.
