Seminar, dedicated to the 15th anniversary of the CIPM MRA, "15 years of the CIPM MRA: the problems of realization and the ways of efficiency improvement"

The seminar "15 years of the CIPM MRA: the problems of realization and the ways of efficiency improvement” took place on May 26, 2015 in Khujand, Tajikistan. The decision to hold such a seminar for the specialists and experts of COOMET was made at the 19th meeting of COOMET President's Council. The seminar was prepared and conducted by COOMET Technical Committee TC 4 "Information and Training" before the annual meeting of COOMET Joint Committee for Measurement Standards (JCMS).

 

The seminar was attended by 30 specialists from 11 COOMET member countries – Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Germany, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Ukraine, and also by the Director of the International Liaison and Communication Department of the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) A. Henson. The seminar was conducted by COOMET Vice-President, Chairperson of TC 4 P. Neyezhmakov.

 

Objective of the seminar was to develop COOMET position on the issues of efficiency improvement of the CIPM MRA, that will be discussed at the Seminar on the CIPM MRA review in October 2015 during the meeting of Directors of National Metrology Institutes (NMI), and COOMET position to the Joint Committee of Regional Metrology Organizations and the BIPM (JCRB) on confirmation of calibration and measurement capabilities (CMC) based on the results of comparisons.

 

The themes of the seminar were the following:

• state and prospects of the CIPM MRA (P.Neyezhmakov, Ukraine)

• highlights of the CIPM MRA realization and the position of RMOs (Ch. Kuanbayev, Kazakhstan)

• issues on confirmation of CMC based on the results of comparisons (A. Chunovkina, Russia).

The lively discussions took place on the issues of organization within TC ongoing COOMET comparisons and problematic issues of the implementation of CIPM MRA.

 

Based on the results of the seminar it was decided the following:

– to prepare the COOMET position on the efficiency improvement of the CIPM MRA for the joint presentation of JCRB for the seminar on the CIPM MRA review in October 2015 during the meeting of NMI Directors

– Chairpersons of COOMET TCs to monitor constantly the comparisons published in KCDB as well as CMC posted for peer review on the JCRB website, also to provide quickly response to the notifications sent by KCDB

– Chairpersons of COOMET TCs in their activities to be guided by the requirements of the CIPM MRA guideline documents on comparisons and CMC peer review

– to prepare the COOMET position on the CMC confirmation based on the results of comparisons for the discussion within JCRB. The seminar was positively assessed by participants. The results of the seminar are very important for the COOMET activities on the successful realization of the CIPM MRA
