Welcome to the Standards Link from Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards, featuring the latest SLBS news and updates.
SLBS AWARDED FOR WORK IN LEGAL METROLOGY
The OIML is the world’s premiere body for legal metrology and is an intergovernmental treaty organization which was established to develop model regulations, standards and related documents for use by legal Metrology authorities and industry.
FACES OF METROLOGY
Meet all the members of our Metrology team, who, driven by our mission and vision; continue to make valuable contributions to Metrology, the SLBS and the country.
INTERVIEW WITH HEAD OF METROLOGY
Question: How do you feel about your department getting this award?
Answer: I am quite elated that the Metrology Department has received this international award from the OIML as this is confirmation that our progress over the years in legal metrology (weights & measures) is worthy of emulation by other developing countries.
Metrology is the science of measurement. The Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards administers the Metrology Act No. 17 of 2000 and the Metrology Regulations No. 113 of 2001. Our metrology legislation is derived from recommendations of the International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML) and is therefore WTO compliant.
