Metrology for Safety

Every year on 20 May, the World Metrology Day celebrates the signature by representatives of 17 nations of the Metre Convention on 20 May 1875. The Convention set the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement and in its industrial, commercial, and societal application.

The original aim of the Metre Convention—the worldwide uniformity of measurement—remains as important today as it was in 1875. This year, the theme is “Metrology for Safety”—a wide-ranging topic but one which concerns everyone in a multitude of situations. The World Metrology Day project is currently realized jointly by the BIPM and the OIML together with PTB International Technical Cooperation.
