This year, the focus is “Measures for world trade”. The objective is to promote the important role of Metrology in our society in facilitating fair world trade, guaranteeing the conformity of products with standards and regulations, and satisfying customer expectations for quality.
LNE is at your side. The Covid-19 epidemic is affecting the world, we are organising our activity to meet your needs and to support you in your activities, our staff are working remotely during this exceptional period:
On 21 and 22 January 2020, LNE is organizing a workshop for national metrology institutes, calibration laboratories and measurement manufacturers on the evaluation of measurement uncertainty in practice.
The SI comprises seven units of measurement that are found in every aspect of our day-to-day lives; they are especially critical to industry. For the last two centuries, metrologists have been constantly working to improve those units of measurement, and four of them were redefined in 2018. Read our comprehensive report on the subject.
