KCDB 2.0 - Online technical exchanges


In order for the global metrology system to continue to improve, whilst underpinning its long-term sustainability, it is necessary to operate the technical framework - the CIPM MRA - as effectively as possible. This can be achieved by optimal use of the KCDB tools.

In this regard the BIPM is offering a series of online technical exchanges aimed at supporting those who create/submit CMCs and those who actually coordinate the review and act as reviewers.

These online technical exchanges focus on particular topics related to the KCDB and will typically require participants to prepare by watching a selection of short video clips and/or presentations. The sessions will adopt a 'questions and answers' format with experts from the BIPM team. Duration is usually less than one hour.

Is this for you?


These online technical exchanges are focused on: those who submit CMCs and are not otherwise involved in the operation in the system; or the operators (typically the TC/WG Chairs and TC/WG members) who are involved in the review process.

The online technical exchanges will be announced as they become available.
