European Association of National Metrology Institutes
EURAMET e.V. is the new Regional Metrology Organisation (RMO) of Europe.
Since 1st July 2007 EURAMET e.V. is the successor of EUROMET.
The 21st General Assembly in Teddington, UK, from 30 to 31 May 2007 took the decision to terminate the EUROMET Memorandum of Understanding with effect from 30 June 2007.
All activities and responsibilities as the Regional Metrology Organisation of Europe have been transferred to the “European Association of National Metrology Institutes, EURAMET e.V.” with effect from 1 July 2007.
The website of EURAMET e.V. is still under construction. In the meantime, relevant information on members and contacts of EURAMET can be found under http://www.euromet.org/euramet/euramet.html
The Technical Committees (TC) of EUROMET have been re-established in EURAMET e.V. All their activities and projects will be continued in the framework of EURAMET e.V. For information on projects and documents of the TCs, please consult the relevant parts of the EUROMET website till the new EURAMET website is established.
EUROMET is a cooperative voluntary organisation between national metrology institutes (NMIs) in the EU and EFTA, including the European Commission. Established NMIs from other European states can also be members subject to the agreement of existing members. Currently, EUROMET has 34 members, with nearly every European state represented.
The objective of EUROMET is to promote the coordination of metrological activities and services with the purpose of achieving higher efficiency.
EUROMET was formally established by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) by participating States in Madrid, Spain on 23 September 1987 to become operative from 1 January 1988. Since then, the MOU was amended in 1995 and 1998.
Metrology, which is the science of measurement, plays a key role in industry, international trade and in everyday life. Accurate and reliable measurements are critical in assuring product quality, and in supporting environmental, health and safety issues. An accurate system of weights and measures is an essential pre-requisite for global and national economic activity, fair-trading, quality control and serves to protect the customer.
