Industrial Metrology

 

  The field of metrology which provides the correct operation of measuring instruments in industry, production and during testings that promotes the science and life level of citizens.

  The main activities of industrial metrology are provision of traceability, calibration, testings and measurements which promote the economic, scientific and technical development of the country. Therefore, in the system of Ensuring the Uniformity of Measurements the existence of an Industrial Metrology Center consisting of calibration laboratories equipped with relevant measurement standards corresponding to the international metrological requirements is a necessity. This will significantly improve the quality of metrological service of industrial enterprises, as well as will develop the legal and scientific metrology.

  For this perspective, understanding the need in proper functioning of industrial metrology sector in the country a new project “Trade Promotion and Quality Infrastructure Project” (TPQI) was commenced which aims at strengthening the capacity of NIM in industrial metrology, according to international standards.

  The main actions of the project are the following:

  • NIM reorganization intended to develop an institution of a global impact, which will provide metrological services according with internationally recognized Quality management systems,
  • Renovation of building and laboratories for the industrial metrology center, procurement of equipment for laboratories intending to modernization of metrology system infrastructure,
  • NIM staff competency development intended to obtain appropriate experience for exploitation of the state to the art measuring equipment.

  As a result NIM will be provided with internationally recognized laboratories and will participate in inter-laboratory comparisons.
