Metrology is the science of measurement. As the UK's National Metrology Institute (NMI), NPL's mission is to provide the measurement capability that underpins the UK's prosperity and quality of life. We are able to provide confidence in measurement results and data traceable to SI units.
Since 1900 we have developed and maintained the nation's primary measurement standards. These standards help provide confidence that the goods and services we buy live up to their claims, that the medicines we take are the right dosage, and the data we use for everything from climate change to financial trading is accurate.
As one of the world’s leading NMIs and a recognised centre of excellence, NPL is committed to sharing its expertise to build and enhance measurement skills and capabilities. Our training covers the importance of metrology, advancements in measurement science, and the application of good measurement practices.
