Abstract

The European regulatory infrastructure depends on measurements and tests, which need to be reliable, trusted internationally and which do not form a barrier to trade. Although broadly harmonised, differences in measurement practice amongst regulators and associated bodies still exist even within the EU. This is because the approach by the regulatory community in Europe is still influenced by historical practice and awareness of measurement issues varies significantly. Equally, development of national measurement capability does not always take optimum account of the regulatory perspective.
With partial support from the European Commission a partnership of nine European National Metrology Institutes, the EC Joint Research Centre and the European Organisation for Conformity Assessment are engaged in the RegMet project with the regulatory community to overcome this historical legacy. This paper describes the aims and progress of the RegMet project, including identified areas of best practice and potential routes forward.
