Calorimeters are indispensable for characterization, validation and routine checking of the performance of industrial electron accelerators. This paper describes how calorimetry can establish traceability to primary standards, how routine dosimeters are calibrated by means of calorimetry, and how nominal doses are documented by calorimetry during validation exercises and during daily operation. Construction and calibration of the calorimeters are described, and data on the precision and accuracy are given.
