Measurement is everywhere, playing a vital role in our lives.
The National Measurement System (NMS) is a network of laboratories and processes that provide measurement standards and calibration testing facilities. It maintains the measurement infrastructure, represents the position of UK measurement internationally and influences the development of standards.
The NMS is funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and supports innovation in business by demonstrating the compliance of new products and processes, reducing development times and making existing product improvements possible.
The NMS disseminates measurement knowledge and information through events, research, case studies, training, newsletters, advice and guides, to the wider measurement community.
