Color standards?

Hi everyone,

I need an information about the following matter.

Say, we are talking about kg and I have a scale to measure the weights. If I put a one kilogram on the scale I see 1 kg on the display of course. This is possible because there is a standard 1 kg in "International Bureau of Weights and Measures laboratory at Sèvres, France". All the weighing devices is calibrated accordingly to this standard 1kg in that primary lab. Different manufacturers, different models are able to say same weighing value.

Similarly, there are different devices to measure colors to get CIELab values. So there should be reference colors with certain CIELab values in a primary lab.
So, I can determine if my device is measuring correctly by getting that physical color sample.

Where are these color samples with CIELab values? I mean, How KonicaMinolta, DataColor, Xrite etc are based on a standard? All those brands provide almost same CIELab values when measure the same color. There should be a few color samples with CIELab values stored in a place? right?

Thanks in advance..
