  • represents the interests of the legal metrology community within international organizations and forums concerned with metrology, standardization, testing, certification and accreditation
  • promotes and facilitates the exchange of knowledge and competencies within the legal metrology community worldwide
  • cooperates with other metrology bodies to raise awareness of the contribution that a sound legal metrology infrastructure can make to a modern economy
