OIML Seminar on Countries and Economies with Emerging Metrology Systems (CEEMS)


The ideas put forward by the participants during the highly successful Seminar held in Chengdu, P.R. China in May 2015 opened many avenues for future activities in each of the areas discussed.

They are being analyzed and will be used to prepare the agenda for the CEEMS seminar to be held in conjunction with the 50th CIML Meeting in Arcachon.

It is hoped that together, these two seminars will enable the OIML to establish strategies for cooperation with other international organizations as well as concrete actions for the future which will be of real benefit to all countries and economies with emerging metrology systems.

All OIML Member States and Corresponding Members are encouraged to attend.
