Global Leadership of KRISS

Representing Korea as a signatory to the Meter Convention, a multilateral international treaty, KRISS has enhanced Korea’s international prestige as a member of the CIPM (International Committee for Weights and Measures), which leads international activities in metrology with its ten Consultative Committees. KRISS successfully hosted the General Assembly and Related Meetings of the APMP (Asia-Pacific Metrology Programme) in 2005 and 2014. KRISS also confirmed its leadership by holding the titles of the APMP chair and secretariat for two years from November 2007. Moreover, KRISS has been actively participating in development aid programs in metrology in Asia, Africa and Latin America, while establishing itself as a global leader in metrology, as well as a partner for mutual benefits and a benchmarking model.
