The COOMET Joint Committee on Measurement Standards (COOMET JC MS) was established at the 12-th COOMET Committee Meeting in Havana in May 2002 with the purpose to improve COOMET structure.
The COOMET JC MS uses in its activities valid documents and procedures issued by COOMET as well as by Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) and Joint Committee of the Regional Metrology Organizations and BIPM (JCRB). A Vice-President responsible for cooperation in the field of measurement standards coordinates the COOMET JC MS activities.
