World Metrology Day is Being Celebrated on 20th May

IMPORTANT DAYS, BOOKS & AUTHORS

World Metrology Day is being celebrated on 20th May annually to commemorate the commencement of the Metre Convention signed in 1875 by representatives of seventeen nations and to celebrate the International System of Units.

The Convention set the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement and in its industrial, commercial, and societal applications. The original aim of the Metre Convention - the worldwide uniformity of measurement - remains as important today as it was in 1875. 

The theme fixed for World Metrology Day 2022 is ‘Metrology in the Digital Era’. The theme was chosen because digital technology is revolutionizing our community and is one of the most exciting trends in society today.

The World Metrology Day project is realized jointly by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) and the International Organisation of Legal Metrology (OIML). 

The Metre Convention aims to provide the global basis for a standard measurement system to encourage scientific discovery, innovation, international trade, industrial manufacturing, and quality of life. It also aims to set the framework for collaboration in science and measurements globally. Because of this Treaty, the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) was formed.
