Abstract: The increasing reliance of American industry and science on vacuum technology has generated a continuing demand for improved vacuum measurement accuracy. The National Bureau of Standards has responded with a vacuum and leak standards program. This article describes the goals of the NBS program, the current state of vacuum standards and calibration services at NBS, and the operation of the U.S. voluntary standards program. Information is contained on the performance of vacuum instruments that might be used in an industrial vacuum calibration laboratory.
