We are using measurement to help protect our environment. We support environmental management of pollutants, including research into new contaminants of concern and greenhouse gases.

A healthy environment is vital for all of us. At the National Measurement Institute we work with industry, government and academia—in Australia and around the world—to help protect our environment now, and into the future.

We apply our specialist measurement expertise to:

  • ensure the quality of environmental data such as water quality and flow measurements
  • contribute to strong science-based evidence to inform environmental management and policy development
  • help Australia meet its international environmental treaty obligations
  • address emerging and priority environmental challenges on a national and global scale. 

Our high-quality testing and analysis and calibration services support:

  • regulatory compliance
  • environmental management
  • crisis response across all levels of government.

We develop reference standards and other measurement quality tools to help ensure measurements are reliable and comparable.

Our research helps address priority and emerging environmental issues.

We're a trusted and respected source of independent measurement advice for government, industry, research and the community.
