The signing of a Joint Statement of Intent “On the digital transformation in the international scientific and quality infrastructure” between OIML BIPM, IMEKO, ISC and CODATA


The International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML), the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM)), the International Measurement Confederation (IMEKO), the ISC RFP -LAC International Science Council (ISC) and its Committee on Data (CODATA) signed a Joint Statement of Intent On the digital transformation in the international scientific and quality infrastructure (Joint Statement) on 30 March 2022.

The Joint Statement provides a platform for the signatory organisations to come together to indicate their support, in ways that are appropriate to each particular organisation, for the development, implementation, and promotion of the SI Digital Framework as part of a wider digital transformation of the international scientific and quality infrastructure. Other international organisations are expected to sign the Joint Statement in the future.

The OIML is openly and actively engaging in the digital transformation of legal metrology. This has been recently demonstrated by the creation of the OIML Digitalisation Task Group. This Task Group, which consists of 15 OIML Members and international and regional organisations, is a new horizontal group of the OIML that will support the digital transformation of legal metrology processes and services and support, promote and coordinate the international harmonisation and implementation of digital transformation in legal metrology. By signing the Joint Statement, the OIML signals its support of the principles contained in it and provides a frame of reference for the OIML Digitalisation Task Group.

The Joint Statement also supports the 2022 World Metrology Day theme, Metrology in the Digital Era. This theme was selected because digitalisation and digital transformation are part of our community and are of interest to all the Members of the OIML and our various stakeholders.

In signing the Joint Statement, the OIML aims to continue to support the objectives of its 125 Members.
