NCSL International (NCSI)


Establish liaison between laboratory managers throughout the utility industry to examine areas of mutual concern.

Through discussions, papers, workshops, and contributions from NIST and other sections of the metrology community, develop recommended practices and guidelines that will enable utility laboratory managers to operate their facilities more efficiently.

To stay abreast of new equipment development to enhance public awareness and respect for precision metrology in ultimate customer service.

Standards and Measurements

The NIST Measurement Services Division (MSD) facilitates access to measurement and standards activities of NIST Laboratories and Programs through the dissemination of NIST products, data, and services. MSD is composed of three groups: Standard Reference Data, Standard Reference Materials, and Calibrations. The first group provides scientists, engineers and the general public access to critically evaluated data necessary to perform state-of-the-art research and development, and product and process development. The next two make up the largest and most successful measurement traceability in the world.

Through these groups the measurement standards and services generated in the technical laboratories of NIST are provided to meet the needs of state and local governments, federal agencies, industry, and the scientific community for traceability, at necessary levels of accuracy, to national standards. Measurement services provides expert guidance and services regarding legal metrology to state and local governments, business, and industry to ensure measurement uniformity, traceability, and equity in domestic and international commerce.

The Office of Measurement Services has successfully placed these traditional and discrete services within the context of the critical regulatory, market, and trade issues of today. This coordinating effort has served to heighten the importance, effectiveness, and relevance of the technological assistance that
NIST provides.

Institute for National Measurement Standards

The Institute for National Measurement Standards (INMS) is Canada’s National Metrology Institute (NMI). In accordance with the National Research Council Act, it is charged with the responsibility to investigate and determine standards and methods of measurement. The Institute carries out a wide range of research and service activities to fulfill this responsibility and support the Canadian innovation system. INMS has a long history of research excellence and value
for Canada.

CAL LAB, The International Journal of Metrology


CAL LAB is a publication that seeks to further the science of metrology (measurement) and the industry of calibration through the sharing of information about developments in the field. We are not a magazine empire. We are a handful of dedicated metrology enthusiasts that belong to and/or support the National Conference of Standards Laboratories (NCSL) and the Measurement Science Conference, the National Council of Weights and Measures, ISA, IEEE, International Society of Weighing and Measurement, and American Society of Quality (ASQ).
