It has published a segment of its CMC in the BIPM database and works to expand them. Participate in the work and projects COOMET.

It has 8 labs that cover measurements of physical quantities, dimensional, mass-strength, density, volume-flow, temperature, electrical, electronic and physical chemistry. Run annually about 50 000 calibrations and verifications of measuring instruments.

Besides participating in various projects under COOMET, has deployed in recent years a number of important research projects of various profiles. This has helped create or improve national standards in various physical quantities, establish new methods for measuring and education projects to increase entrepreneurship metrology.
