2018 BIPM-AFRIMETS "Sound beginning in the CIPM MRA" Workshop

BIPM-AFRIMETS Workshop

The 2018 BIPM-AFRIMETS "Sound beginning in the CIPM MRA" Workshop, initiative between the BIPM and AFRIMETS, is designed to give a deeper understanding of the CIPM MRA and in particular of its importance. The Workshop is intended to explain the role and implementation of the CIPM MRA within the global quality infrastructure.

This one-day workshop is a follow-up event to the global "Sound beginning in the CIPM MRA" course, which was held at the BIPM in November 2017. The content will be specifically tailored to the needs of AFRIMETS, with a focus on the implementation of the CIPM MRA in developing countries.

All members of AFRIMETS are welcome to participate in the Workshop, which will be organized in the form of lectures and case studies to be presented by experienced NMIs that have already successfully submitted their CMCs. The workshop will follow a discussion and "question and response" format, allowing knowledge transfer and experience sharing between participants and experts. Participants will be encouraged to actively participate in the workshop.
