The talk will present the overview of the jet energy calibration
procedure at D0 followed by the discussion of systematic uncertainties and
the validation studies. An extension of previously used methods together
with careful treatement of additional biases yields significant
improvements in the precision which reached the level of 1-1.5% over a wide
range of jet energies and rapidities. The results obtained have a
direct impact on the quality of physics measurements, because the jet energy
scale calibration is a leading systematic uncertainty in many measurements.
The procedures developed and the experience gained at the Tevatron could
benefit LHC experiments.
