In the field of fundamental metrology:


The National Institute of Metrology (INM), with laboratories in Bucharest and Timisoara, provides the maintenance and development of the national measurement standards, their comparison with international measurement standards and measurement standards of other countries, dissemination of the measurement units to secondary standards, higher echelon calibration services, scientific research in metrology and other related fields. INM is a research institute, part of the BRML structure, which is financed mainly through services paid by customers, but also through contracts financed by the Ministry of Research and Technology.


The activity of INM covers the major part of physical quantities (dimensional, mechanical, electromagnetic, thermal, optical, physical-chemical, ionising radiation, etc.). The primary standards realised at INM are assessed by BRML and declared as national standards through governmental decisions.

INM also performs calibrations, metrological verifications, pattern and conformity tests, high accuracy measurements, certification of reference materials, international cooperation; offers consultations, education and training in metrology; prepares calibration/verification procedures and publishes the technical quarterly journal METROLOGIE.


In the field of applied metrology:


The set of activities aimed at assuring traceability of all measurements in industry and other areas – also known as industrial or technical metrology – is carried out mainly in the regional metrology laboratories belonging to BRML and in the laboratories of enterprises and factories.


In the field of legal metrology:


According to the legislation in force in the field of metrology, the measuring instruments used in areas of public interest, such as trade, health, environment protection, etc. are submitted to the metrological control of the state. This control is exerted mainly through the authorisation of metrology laboratories and their personnel, through pattern approval of measuring instruments manufactured in Romania or imported, through initial and subsequent metrological verifications and through metrological surveillance.

BRML issues orders and regulations in the field of legal metrology, performs inspections and applies sanctions, represents Romania in the international organisations of legal metrology.
