Confidence in measurement is necessary for fair local trade, consumer protection and international commodity trading. The National Metrology Institutes and other National Bodies responsible for Metrology are main actors in offering correct measurements for society and industry. The managing staffs of these institutions are the key to promoting and developing correct and high quality measurements in their countries, and as consequence in the region.

ECOWAS and PTB therefore offer a 10 day course on Legal and Industrial Metrology delivered by the UK’s National Measurement and Regulation Office (NMRO) with support and input from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the British Standards Institute (BSI) and the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). The course will be delivered through a range of formal seminars, hands-on practical exercises and various demonstrations and is tailored to the Management Staff of National Metrology Institutes or other National bodies responsible for Metrology. This course is also open for capacity building for technical Staff of the ECOWAS Commission in charge of Quality.

The course will be exclusively in English.

The maximum number of participants from ECOWAS member States will not exceed 12 in total.
