“The mission of the OIML is to enable economies to put in place effective legal metrology infrastructures that are mutually compatible and internationally recognized, for all areas for which governments take responsibility, such as those which facilitate trade, establish mutual confidence and harmonize the level of consumer protection worldwide.”
The OIML is only one example of a group of international standards which Citadel Engineering Company adheres to in our Operations.
OK, but why is Metrology important?
Measurements are so much a part of our daily lives that we often take them for granted and possibly don’t even notice them. For example we monitor the speed at which we drive to ensure we travel safely and thus reduce road casualties, undergo medical checks to make sure we remain healthy, use time to be punctual for appointments, and satellite positioning systems to pinpoint our location, fill our cars with fuel by volume, have our vehicles checked to monitor the exhaust emission levels, and so on.
