Potential economic impact of the CIPM MRA

Potential Economic Impact of the CIPM Mutual Recognition Arrangement
KPMG Report, 2002, 125 pp.

The above study was carried out on behalf of the BIPM with three main goals:

    • to study the economics of central coordination of multilateral relationships between individual national metrology institutes (NMIs);

    • to study the CIPM MRA's potential impact on economic efficiency as a facilitator of reductions in technical barriers to trade; and

    • to present a set of arguments that might be useful in ensuring that potential economic benefits associated directly with the CIPM MRA are actually realized.
