55th CIML meeting online
On October 20-22 a meeting of the International Committee of Legal Metrology (CIML), one of the main working and decision-making bodies of the International Organization of Legal Metrology was held. Because of the COVID 19 pandemic the meeting for the first time was held remotely.
During a series of sessions, particular attention was paid to the challenges facing the organization, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Attention was drawn to the need for legal metrological control of measuring instruments used in medicine, which is particularly important nowadays. In addition, several OIML publications (including recommendations) were approved in the field of fuel dispensers, scales and multidimensional measuring instruments. The discussion focused on increasing the promotion and recognition of OIML through, inter alia, increasing the number of articles in the OIML bulletin. One of the issues discussed during the meeting was also the election of the chairperson and vice-chairperson of the committee for the management of the OIML certification system (representatives of United Kingdom and Australia).
