The aim of this workshop was to engage in a broad discussion of the CIPM MRA amongst Directors of National Metrology Institutes, Member State representatives, representatives of RMOs, and other relevant stakeholders. The workshop considered the benefits of the CIPM MRA, as well as establishing views on what works well, and what needs to be improved regarding its implementation.
