This paper describes a program for disseminating state-of-the-art information concerning accuracies in certain electrical measurements. The program is to be carried out by IRE Subcommittee 25.1, Basic Standards and Calibration Methods, who will employ task groups made up of representatives from industrial, government, and educational institutions for assistance in assembling information and preparing reports. The initiation of the work has been approved by IRE Committee 25, Measurements and Instrumentation, and IRE Committee 20, Standards. A discussion is given of the needs, plans, procedures and benefits of the program. Since the entire electrical industry can benefit greatly by this effort, this paper is being published so that members of the IRE can become acquainted with it and submit constructive suggestions for the implementation and extension of the program.
