Providing confidence and traceability

NPL develops highly-accurate metrology instruments, sensors and artefacts. We design, manufacture and deliver innovative technical solutions based on state-of-the-art measurement science and precision engineering expertise. As the UK’s National Metrology Institute, we enable and support accurate and traceable measurements.

Most industrial processes and instruments rely on measurement. We work with customers who demand absolute confidence in their measurements and sensing applications.  Our instruments range from standard artefacts to bespoke systems designed to meet specific measurement requirements. We also offer complete metrology systems based on those operated at NPL.
