This part of ISO 7250 describes knowledge and skills required for experienced anthropometrist who serves as a measurer in anthropometric surveys or a planner of an anthropometric survey. This part of ISO 7250 also describes methods to quantify the skill of anthropometrists and to report their performance. Information on the quality control of anthropometric data is mentioned in several different standards. Measurer training by persons experienced in anthropometry is required (ISO 15535). Scan-derived measurements are evaluated using the measurements taken by an anthropometrist with several year’s experience in the methods of ISO 7250-1 as the true values (ISO 20685-1). However, expected performance of an experienced anthropometrist is not clear. This part of ISO 7250 is not a textbook or manual for anthropometry but may be useful for those who plan and conduct anthropometric surveys as well as designers and technologists who utilize anthropometric data. Methods described in this document may also be applicable to measurements other than those described in ISO 7250-1.
