The basic activity of COOMET is cooperation in the following areas:
- measurement standards of physical quantities;
- legal metrology;
- quality management systems;
- information and training.
COOMET countries cooperate in the following subject fields:
acoustics, ultrasound, vibration; electricity and magnetism; flow measurement; ionizing radiation and radioactivity; length and angle; mass and related quantities; photometry and radiometry; physical chemistry; thermometry and thermal physics; time and frequency; reference materials; general questions concerning measurements (general metrology); legal metrology; quality management systems; information and information technology; training and raising proficiency level of experts.
An important prerequisite of COOMET effectiveness is the collaboration in all fields of activities.
