Calibration, the function of providing verification that measurements are what they should be, is essential to industry and commerce. With the growing international adoption of the ISO standards for quality, safety and environmental concerns in manufacturing and services, manufacturers and governments are realizing the importance of measurement and calibration in commerce. We must harness that momentum and use it to establish better educational and training opportunities for people in metrology and calibration, higher funding for research and development, and increased involvement in the management and quality processes in companies.
