    International Comparison
    The Mutual Recognition Arrangement of International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM MRA) is the supporting structure through the National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) in corroborate the international equivalence of their measurement standards and the calibration and measurement certificates issued by them. The technical basis of CIPM MRA is the set of results obtained for certain range of time through scientific key comparison carried out by the Consultative Committees (CCs) of the CIPM, the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) and the Regional Metrology Organizations (RMOs).

    Automated Enforcement System (AES)

    The Automated Enforcement System (AES) is an automated camera-recorded speed and red light violation system introduced by the Ministry of Transport of Malaysia with an objective to reduce road fatalities and crashes. In order to ensure the AES operates accurately and reliably, the AES must be periodically calibrated and verified to confirm its accuracy is within permissible tolerances in accordance with national and international legal metrology requirements before it can be used for enforcement. To calibrate and verify the AES, the measuring system used must be at least three times more accurate (reference: International Organization of Legal Metrology R91) than the AES under test.

    Proficiency Testing/Measurement Audit Programmes

    • Proficiency Testing (PT) is the determination of the calibration or testing performance of a laboratory by means of inter-laboratory comparison (ILC).
    • ILC is the organisation, performance and evaluation of calibration/tests on the same or similar calibration/test items by two or more laboratories in accordance with predetermined conditions.
    • Calibration interlaboratory comparisons in which an artefact is distributed to one laboratory 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).

    Calibration & Measurement Services

    Calibration plays an important role to ensure the accuracy of a measurement and quality control. It is essential to guarantee quality of products is at best due to competitiveness of various sectors arises nowadays. In addition to that, the science of measurement is crucial in economic development, social well- being, safety and health as well as public welfare.
    NMIM functions as reference standard laboratory that provides traceability to the SI unit for mass (weight), length, time, resistance, voltage and density. In respect to that, NMIM offers measurement and calibration services to cater the needs in various parameters including Electrical, Mechanical, Thermophysical, Flow and Chemical.
