The World Metrology Day project is realised jointly by the BIPM and the OIML and is celebrated on 20 May each year.
The theme for 2020: Measurements for global trade was chosen to create awareness of the important role measurement plays in facilitating fair global trade, ensuring products meet standards and regulations, and satisfying customer quality expectations.
Indeed more widely metrology, the science of measurement, plays a central role in scientific discovery and innovation, industrial manufacturing and international trade, in improving the quality of life and in protecting the global environment.
The 2020 World Metrology Day Resource website is now available: http://www.worldmetrologyday.org/ and includes a Press Release, the Directors’ Message and the poster in English and French.
Please feel free to access these materials and use them to support and promote the importance of metrology and World Metrology Day.
