As the NMI of Korea, KRISS has boosted the qualitative level of the KC outcome, intensified activities as international metrology specialists through international conferences held with international bodies in metrology, and improved cooperation with overseas NMIs in advanced and developing countries. Over the last decades, KRISS has raised international recognition of Korea’s technological capabilities in metrology, and has promoted Korea’s global leadership in the field of measurement standards and science.

Global Leadership of KRISS

Representing Korea as a signatory to the Meter Convention, an 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 CCs (Consultative Committees) and is responsible for international activities of measurement standards. KRISS successfully hosted the General Assembly and Related Meetings of the APMP (Asia- Pacific Metrology Program) in 2005 and 2014. KRISS also continued its leadership by holding the titles of the APMP Chair and continues to serve as an EC member and TC Chair.
