The principle of metrological traceability is foundational to the modern system of measurement. The concept of relating a measurement result to a reference through an unbroken chain of calibrations, each contributing to the measurement uncertainty allows us to achieve the quality of measurements that underpins our modern world. This paper describes metrological traceability and how it is recognized, how it fits into the wider metrological and quality infrastructure, and reflects on technological changes that may challenge the present paradigm.
