The theme for World Metrology Day 2017 isMeasurements for transport. This theme was chosen because transport plays sucha key role in the modern world. We not only move ourselves, but also the foodwe eat, the clothes we wear, the goods we use and rely on, not forgetting theraw materials they are made from. Doing so safely, efficiently and with minimalenvironmental impact requires an astonishing range of measurements.

Indeed more widely metrology, the scienceof measurement, plays a central role in scientific discovery and innovation,industrial manufacturing and international trade, in improving the quality oflife and in protecting the global environment.

 World Metrology Day is an annualcelebration of the signature of the Metre Convention on 20 May 1875 byrepresentatives of seventeen nations. The Convention set the framework forglobal collaboration in the science of measurement and in its industrial,commercial and societal applications. The original aim of the Metre Convention- the world-wide uniformity of measurement - remains as important today as itwas in 1875.

 The World Metrology Day project is realizedjointly by the BIPM and the OIML. We hope that you enjoy this site and thatyour Country or Metrology Organization will join us and participate in thisyears event.
