I was wondering if anyone was aware of any guidance documents that provided
acceptable levels of uncertainty when conducting various tests.  The
specific measurement that I am interested in this case is temperature
measurements, but I would be interested in seeing other guidance for other
measurements as well (voltage, current, force etc.)

I know the IECEE has published a CTL decision sheet on equipment accuracy,
but I was wondering if there was other industry guidance available.

I have a situation where a product was subjected to a temperature test
three times by three different individuals using the same test equipment,
and the delta in some instances was nearly 12 degrees C (53.3 - 64.8) for
the same component.  Just looking for some additional guidance documents or
standards that would help me convince the powers that be that such errors
are unacceptable.
