The International Committee of Legal Metrology (CIML) elects the NMI’s General Manager of Legal Metrology, Dr Bill Loizides, as Second Vice-President.
Legal metrology deals with measurement laws and systems, and NMI works with other countries to ensure the same principles apply worldwide.
The appointment recognises Australia’s leadership and expertise in the legal metrology space.
The CIML is the peak body under the International Organisation of Legal Metrology (OIML) Convention. More than 120 member states voted on the appointment.
Dr Loizides will serve as Second Vice-President for a term of 6 years from October 2023.
