22 May 2017, National Metrology Institute of Malaysia (NMIM) hosted the Asia Pacific Metrology Programme (APMP) Mid-Year Meetings and Joint APMP/APLMF Workshop on Modernising National Metrology Infrastructure. Both programmes were held concurrently at Hatten Hotel, Malacca from May 22 - 26, 2017. In conjunction with both programmes, NMIM took the opportunity to launch the celebration of World Metrology Day 2017 which falls on 20 May annually, with the presence of world leaders on metrology. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Measurements for Transport”. It was the most memorable event to the local measurement scene as the opening of all the programmes were officiated by Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, YB Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Madius Tangau.

During the memorable event, Malaysia is truly honoured to have the presence of world leaders on metrology; Dr. Barry Inglis President of the International Committee Of Weights and Measures (CIPM), Dr. Stephen Patoray Director of International Bureau of Legal Metrology (BIML), Dr. Toshiyuki Takatsuji Chair of Asia Pacific Metrology Programme (APMP), Mr. Stephen O‘Brien President of Asia-Pacific Legal Metrology Forum (APLMF) and regional experts on scientific and legal metrology.

The APMP Mid-Year Meetings are held annually not only for the purpose of strategic planning of the APMP but also to create awareness of the importance of metrology amongst local stakeholders and to further foster the interaction of local experts with regional experts in the field of metrology. The Joint APLMF/APMP on Modernising National Metrology Infrastructures is a Metrology Enabling Developing Economies in Asia or MEDEA project funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Germany. The workshop combined the scientific and legal metrology communities on the same platform to share their experience in developing their National Metrology Infrastructure. The aim of a national metrological infrastructure is to meet the demands of society, industry and the scientific community for reliable and accurate measurements. This 2-day workshop is designed to expose participants to relevant tools and good practices they can adopt to ensure their measurement infrastructure is meeting their economy’s requirements.

Malaysia as the host for this event gathered more than 24 countries in Asia Pacific consisting of representatives of the international metrology bodies along the Directors of National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) and representatives of the authorities of Legal Metrology. By successfully organising this event, Malaysia has gained more respect globally in matters related to metrology. Furthermore, Malaysia through NMIM has been actively providing the traceability of measurements to the whole country based on the International System of Units.

  • PT MA
    Proficiency Testing (PT) is the determination of the calibration or testing performance of a laboratory by means of inter-laboratory comparison (ILC). Inter-laboratory comparisons in which an artefact is distributed to laboratories and the results are compared to reference values - to determine the performance of individual lab in the comparison. Measurement audits (MA) in which an artefact is distributed to one laboratory and the results are compared to reference values (one-off).
