Easyis way is that you have something stable. Then measure it at a place where they can do that with great accuracy and write the value on the resistor together with the teperature. Then this is your reference. So you dont have a 10K resistor but a 10.001234 k resistor. As far as you know the difference its ok.
A reference with an LTZ1000 voltage standard ic at about 7V is less than 1ppm per year after the first year.
