Mission of the Forum on Metrology and Digitalization


To advise the CIPM on the SI Digital Framework and the wider implications of the global digital transformation for metrology and for the international Quality Infrastructure including:


  • the adoption of the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) for digital metrological data and metadata, ensuring that other communities recognize the critical importance of metrological traceability for measurement data, the latter being an established requisite for building trust,
  • providing metrological input/thinking to increase confidence in areas impacted by the digital revolution including, but not limited to, examples such as:
    • systems metrology
    • trusted AI
    • the reproducibility of research results,
  • the creation of the authoritative digital reference for core SI information,
  • the digital transformation of services and products offered by the BIPM,
  • the implications of digital transformation on the operation of the CIPM-MRA including, but not limited to:
    • implementing the SI Digital Framework
    • digital calibration certificates
    • data integrity and authenticity (e.g., digital signatures) of data for metrology and metrological services
    • relevant services and infrastructure in digital metrology

To harmonize internal processes related to digitalization between NMIs, CCs, RMOs, and BIPM headquarters.

To act as a forum to exchange information and to create synergies and opportunities for collaboration in this field, including, but not limited to, liaison with International QI Organizations, relevant International Organizations, international Science organizations, relevant industry associations, and further relevant stakeholders in digitalization.
