This brochure specifies principles for establishing the use of units in a digitalised communication of machine-readable data. These principles are the basis for all applications that transfer or require measurement data according to the specifications of the Système International d’Unités (SI). Fundamental principles for a harmonised, unambiguous, easy-to-understand and safe digital communication of metrological data are specified for real quantities and quantities related to constants. The principles consider a broad scope of requirements from a metrological and information and communications technology (ICT) point of view.
The version of the metadata model which is described in this document is D-SI v1.3.0.
This brochure is deliverable D2 of the EURAMET EMPIR project 17IND02 (SmartCom, WP1).
