Meter Wavelength of light emitted by the krypton- 86 isotope (1960)krypton- 86 The present speed of light is defined as 299,792,458 metres per second (in a vacuum) and is used to indirectly calculate the length of the metre (1983)
Liter (litre) A litre is defined as a special name for a cubic decimetre (1 L = 1 dm 3 = 10 3 cm 3 ). Hence 1 L 0.001 m 3 (exactly). So 1,000 L = 1 m 3cm 3m 3 From 1901 to 1964 the litre was defined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water at 4°C and 760 millimetres of mercury pressure. During this time, a litre was about 1.000028 dm 3. In 1964 this definition was abandoned in favour of the current one.waterC millimetres of mercury

EDA in Poland Dear Professor Goldik,: Dear Zeev In conjunction with our previous talks with You and the President of ESA, Sir Peter Simpson and following your meeting with representatives of the Polish Ministry of Health, the Director of the Centre of Medical Examinations, the National Advisor in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Therapy, and the Board of the Polish Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Therapy, I am declaring readiness to introduce written part of the European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care (EDA) as a part of the Polish National Exam in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Therapy since autumn, 2008.
Netherlands Last Monday the Council of the Netherlands Society of Anaesthesiology has discussed the modernized national training program of Anaesthesiology, of which I had the privilege to be one of the architects. Starting the implementation of this program, it was realized that the old exam structure had to be renewed as well. Then the discussion was started whether the European Diploma would not be a very good alternative. The result is that the Council last week decided to recommend the Board of the Netherlands Society to adopt the European Diploma. I guess therefore that you may expect a message from the Netherlands Society in due course.
Austria Adoption of Part II Final Oral Exam and Diploma
Austrian Recognition At its meeting on 28 th January 2009, the Austrian Medical Chamber decided : The Board of Examiners of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Medicine and the Scientific Society recognize the ESA Exams EDA part I and EDA part II as equivalent to the Austrian Medical Chamber Specialist Exam in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Medicine

Glasgow Declaration The role of European Board Examinations is complementary to National Examinations where they exist. Countries which do not have their own examination are encouraged to consider using the appropriate European Board Examination.
Glasgow Declaration European Board Examinations are regarded as a quality mark for independent practice at the end of specialist training. Passing a European Board Examination does not give a right to practise in any UEMS country. Such rights are granted solely by the relevant National Authority
Glasgow Declaration All European Board Examinations shall publish both a Curriculum (as set out in Chapter 6 of the UEMS Training Charter) and minimum requirements for examination Candidates of any nationality shall be eligible to sit the European Board Examinations.
Glasgow Declaration Candidates for the final part of a European Board Examination must be medical graduates and should be either Certified specialists in any country (eligibility to be determined by the relevant Section or Multidisciplinary Joint Committee) or Trainees in the final year of specialist training in a UEMS member country.
Glasgow Declaration Candidates who pass a European Board Examination and who are certified specialists may call themselves Fellow of the European Board of ….. and will receive a certificate. Trade sponsorship should not be used to subsidise the examination. It was established a UEMS Council for European Specialist Medical Assessments (UEMS-CESMA) as a part of the ECAMSQ (European Council for Accreditation for Medical Specialty Qualification)
