Metrological support to international trade

Objective

The project addresses one of the key issues in world trade which is the continuing lack of acceptance or recognition of measurement results or certificates provided by national metrological institutions. These technical barriers to trade still exist despite the fact that - for all practical purposes - results were shown to be equivalent world-wide, if properly measured. The project will support essential networking activities within the EU which will significantly improve cohesion both within the EU as well as between EU and its trading partners, through provision of a framework in which there will be mutual acceptance both of national measurement standards and of calibration certificates issued by national metrology institutes. The project will be co-ordinated with the CIPM MRA-initiative and benefit to its implementation.
