2018 World Metrology Day in Chile

Every May 20, World Metrology Day day is celebrated by the The Instituto Nacional de Normalización de Chile - INN (Chile’s NMI) in commemoration of the signing of the Metre Convention that took place in Paris in 1875, a treaty that was signed by Chile in 1908.

The seminar began with the exhibition "Importance of Metrology in the Quality Infrastructure of the country", by Mr. Pedro Ibarra, Head of Metrology Division of INN and moderator of the meeting, who spoke about the importance of this area for the sustained development of a country.

The seminar continued with the exhibition "Fourth Industrial Revolution. Looking from the Chemical Metrology ", dictated by the Chemical Engineer William Güin, expert in chemical metrology and adviser of the division of Metrology of the INN. The talk addressed the changes and new challenges that industries face with the intelligent technology that is installed every day in more areas of society.

"All this fourth industrial revolution is going to change the chemical analysis itself in the measurement part and this we have to understand now. The industries will be faster, more efficient and cheaper, which is already happening in Germany," he said.

The third exhibition "Measuring the Quality Infrastructure. Use of Artificial Intelligence given by the Physical Engineer Gerardo González, physical metrologist and also part of the INN metrology division, dealt with the correlation between the development of quality infrastructure and the economic growth of a country.

"The impact on quality infrastructure is direct, since it promotes the free movement of goods and services, reduces technical barriers and tariff barriers. This has a very important relevance in the free trade agreements. The CI is a great floor to establish equality between us, it is a measure that allows us to compare and trust between countries, "he said.

The last papers were "Biometrology and the new challenges in laboratory tests", dictated by Dr. Esteban Paredes-Osses, a professional from the Institute of Public Health, who addressed the field of metrology associated with molecular biology; the "Importance of the National Metrology Network for future challenges", by Mr. Celestino Meneses, metrologist and head SGC of Intronica Ltda., who highlighted the importance of the National Metrology Network and the role that Chilean universities must fulfill your students, who will be responsible for the development of this area in the future.

2018 World Metrology Day in Ecuador

Metrology, one of the most important sciences that support invention and human creativity, is very important in everyday life due to the need we have for reliable measurements.

In Ecuador, the Ecuadorian Standardization Service - INEN is the body responsible for metrology and acts as the competent national body in quantities such as mass, volume, length, force, pressure, humidity, temperature, energy and chemistry.

For this reason and in the framework of World Metrology Day, which is celebrated every May 20th in honor of the "Metre Convention", and for which this year’s theme is Constant evolution of the International System of Units, INEN has organized an event during which several activities will be developed.

In particular this year our Executive Director has extended a cordial invitation to students, professionals, industry and the general public so that they can be part of this event. Attendees will be able to get to know more about metrology through conferences and an open house which showcases the operation of the laboratories, equipment and processes that are carried out daily in the Technical Direction of Metrology.

The event will be held on May 18th, 2018, starting at 09:00, at the National Metrology Laboratory of INEN located in Quito.

The National Metrology Center of Iran (ISIRI-NMCI) celebrated WMD for the 10th successive year. Professors and students of universities, lab managers, metrology activists and other interested parties were among the participants at Amirkabir University of Technology in Tehran.

Opening the proceedings, Dr. Madanipour, NMCI President, provided a report on NMCI activities carried out last year in the fields of scientific and legal metrology at national and international levels. Emphasizing the redefinition of the International System of Units, he announced the recent establishment of the Iranian Metrology Society.

Mrs. Pirouzbakht, ISIRI President, said the new SI definitions are revolutionary in metrology and will speed up technology development in the world. She invited the Iranian academic community to assist ISIRI-NMCI to promote the New SI in society.

Dr. Mohtamedi, Amirkabir University President, referred to the effective role of universities in metrology and announced his university’s readiness for cooperation in scientific and research fields with ISIRI-NMCI, and so the first step was taken to formally sign a Memorandum of Understanding between ISIRI and that university.

Moreover, a mutual MoU between NMCI and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden with the presence of its representative was signed and exchanged in the interested fields and a lecture on the history of the SI and the redefinition was delivered as well.

Due to NMCI’s participation in the WMD Poster 2019 competition, in an innovation action, an exhibition of all the posters received was held at the venue of the WMD ceremony and all the Iranian volunteers were appreciated for their highly welcome.

Also, the WMD Message of the BIPM and BIML Directors, as well as the WMD poster, were translated into Persian and distributed to 31 relevant provincial institutions in the country.
