Signing of a Joint Statement of Intent "On the digital transformation in the international scientific and quality infrastructure"
The BIPM, the International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML), the International Measurement Confederation (IMEKO), the International Science Council (ISC) and its Committee on Data (CODATA) signed a Joint Statement of Intent On the digital transformation in the international scientific and quality infrastructure on 30 March 2022. The joint statement provides a platform for the signatory organizations to come together to indicate their support, in a way appropriate to their particular organization, to the development, implementation, and promotion of the SI Digital Framework as part of a wider digital transformation of the international scientific and quality infrastructure. Other international organizations are expected to sign the joint statement in the future.
The joint statement is part of an ongoing initiative by the International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM) and its Task Group on the Digital SI (CIPM-TG-DSI) to develop and establish a world-wide uniform and secure data exchange format based on the International System of Units (SI). Prof. J. Ullrich, Chair of the CIPM-TG-DSI, commented that the signing of the joint statement marks a ground-breaking step in transforming the highly successful international scientific and quality infrastructure, with the SI as an anchor of trust, into the era of digitalization.
To further reinforce the CIPM’s commitment to the digital transformation, Draft Resolution B On the global digital transformation and the International System of Units will be presented to the 27th meeting of the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) in November 2022.
