Abstract. The absolute flux calibration of space-borne instruments in the ultraviolet regime rests strongly on model spectra of white dwarfs. The hydrogen-rich white dwarfs GD 71, GD 153, G191-B2B, and HZ 43A are primary standard stars for this. The first three (HZ 43 is a binary) provide the opportunity for a cross-calibration from the extreme ultraviolet to the infrared.
