Resolution 1 of the 22nd CGPM (2003)

Links with other organizations

The 22nd General Conference,


  • the work of the Metre Convention in extending traceability of calibration and measurement results into new application areas,
  • the evident value of collaboration and Joint Committees already established by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) with other international organizations,
  • the need to seek efficiency through collaboration and partnerships with other international organizations, where these serve the common aims and objectives,
  • the long-standing relations with the Organisation Internationale de Métrologie Légale (OIML),

noting and welcoming the formal arrangements recently created by the BIPM with the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), and the efforts of the BIPM to draw up similar arrangements with other bodies,


  • international and intergovernmental organizations for which metrology impinges on their activities to cooperate with BIPM, to develop similar formal relationships and, if necessary, participate in Joint Committees,
  • all Member States to help implement the results of these collaborations and the joint efforts so as to extend the influence and impact of the Metre Convention and of traceability of calibration and measurement results into user domains where these form part of national rather than international responsibilities.
