Description


Handbook 44 was first published in 1949, having been preceded by similar handbooks of various designations and inseveral forms, beginning in 1918.Handbook 44 is published in its entirety each year following the Annual Meeting of the National Conference on Weightsand Measures (NCWM). The Committee on Specifications and Tolerances of the NCWM developed the 2007 Editionwith the assistance of the Weights and Measures Division (WMD) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology(NIST). This handbook includes amendments endorsed by the 91st National Conference on Weights and Measures duringits Annual Meeting in 2006.NIST has a statutory responsibility for "cooperation with the states in securing uniformity of weights and measures lawsand methods of inspection." In partial fulfillment of this responsibility, NIST is pleased to publish theserecommendations of the NCWM.This handbook conforms to the concept of primary use of SI (metric) measurements recommended in the Omnibus Tradeand Competitiveness Act of 1988 by citing SI units before inch-pound units where both units appear together and placingseparate sections containing requirements in SI units before corresponding sections containing requirements in inchpoundunits. In some cases, however, trade practice is currently restricted to the use of inch-pound units; therefore, somerequirements in this handbook will continue to specify only inch-pound units until the NCWM achieves a broadconsensus on the permitted SI units.In accord with NIST policy, the meter/liter spellings are used in this document. However, the metre/litre spellings areacceptable, and are preferred by the NCWM.It should be noted that a space has been inserted instead of commas in all numerical values greater than 9999 in thisdocument, following a growing practice, originating in tabular work, to use spaces to separate large numbers into groupsof three digits. This avoids conflict with the practice in many countries to use the comma as a decimal marker.
