Solving problems and designing the right solution
As the UK National Measurement Institute, NPL uses measurements and standards to allow science and engineering to work seamlessly and markets to operate smoothly. Working across a wide range of scientific disciplines, we help organisations to:
- Continuously innovate to remain profitable and competitive
- Comply with quality system requirements
- Understand their manufacturing processes or materials characteristics
We enable industry to use a common language to measure and evaluate performance, ensure interoperability of components made by different companies and protect consumers by ensuring safety, durability and conformance to specification.
