•Consists of NMIs located in the 34 OAS
Member nations
•Divided into five (5) regions
•All have participated in the
OAS/FEMCIDI Project - promote
cooperation in metrology and
committed to the implementation of a
Global Measurement System
•11 metrology working groups;
•Training: Physical, Chemical and Legal
Metrology, Awareness Activities, Pilot
studies and Measurement Comparisons
•Eight new Associate Members of the
BIPM: BO, CR, EC, JA, PE, PN, PY (and
CARICOM)
SIM – Sistema Inter-americano de Metrologia/InterAmerican Metrology system

SIM QSTF


Established 2002 to evaluate QSs of
signatories to the CIPM MRA – with CMCs
to declare and post on BIPM website.
All SIM members may attend, only MRA
signatories can vote on approval of QSs.

NEW PROJECT PROPOSAL
Strengthening National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) in
the Hemisphere, an essential element in the
development of National Quality Infrastructure (NQI)
GOAL
To enhance the NQI by advancing best practices
at the NMIs and enhancing international
recognition of measurement capabilities in the
hemisphere
PURPOSE
To further strengthen the institutions responsible
for measurements in the Americas and thereby
improve the world-wide reputation and credibility
of the national quality infrastructures.
Three (3) complimentary Project Concepts….



Development of highly qualified metrology personnel capable
of delivering scientific and legal metrology services in the
region coordinated by USA.
Improved measurement capabilities in the hemisphere in
areas that support environmental protection, health and trade
coordinated by Uruguay.
Enhanced knowledge among government officials and
metrology stakeholders of the importance of measurements
to enhance trade and facilitate innovation coordinated by
México.
(Metrology proposals and priorities from the countries in the
hemisphere were integrated into three Projects Concepts
submitted on behalf of the entire membership SIM)
Project details….




Proposed Duration 3 years
Proposed Budget $1M USD
Goal: To contribute to the National Quality
Infrastructure by advancing international
recognition of measurement capabilities in the
hemisphere
Priority Activities:
– 2nd SIM Summer School
– Advanced Internships
– Workshops and Training
– Awareness/Outreach and Communication
Benefits/Sustainability
Beneficiaries include:
– Institutions and technical staff responsible for measurement
standards in each country
– Government and private-sector clients making use of calibration
and measurement services offered by the national metrology
institutes in each participating country
– Regulatory authorities in each participating country
– Trading partners who rely on accurate and reliable
measurements when transacting business, providing health
services, or innovating new technologies.
– Local populations who rely on measurements in their daily lives:
fuel pump dispensers; laboratory tests/blood pressure monitors;
medical radiation treatments.
To be noted...
•
•
Metrology capabilities are essential to
protect the environment and human
health,
increase
competitiveness,
ensure fairness in trade, increase
market access …….
Measurement
needs
change
as
countries
develop
and
while
remarkable progress has been made,
there is still considerable work to be
done
