Recommendation K Metrological Assurance of Conformity Assessment and Testing - Third Edition (ECE/TRADE/482)

Cover of Rec. K third Edition

Metrology ensures the uniformity of measurements and
their metrological traceability to the International System
of Units (SI). It allows manufacturers to produce products
more accurately, more quickly and to a higher standard.
It is the key cornerstone to international standardization
and the quality infrastructure in general, which contributes
to the facilitation of trade.

This recommendation and its
guidelines establish the basis of metrological assurance of
conformity assessment and testing and its optimum use
in international exchanges. It further provides guidance
for economies that have not yet implemented a robust
national metrology system.
