Abstract: Let $ M$ be a closed manifold. We show that the Kontsevich-Vishik trace, which is defined on the set of all classical pseudodifferential operators on $ M$, whose (complex) order is not an integer greater than or equal to $ - \dim M$, is the unique functional which (i) is linear on its domain, (ii) has the trace property and (iii) coincides with the $ L^2$-operator trace on trace class operators.

Also the extension to even-even pseudodifferential operators of arbitrary integer order on odd-dimensional manifolds and to even-odd pseudodifferential operators of arbitrary integer order on even-dimensional manifolds is unique.
