The National Measurement System (NMS) is responsible for stimulating good measurement practice and enabling business to make accurate and traceable measurements, for the benefit of the nation. This is delivered through maintaining the measurement infrastructure, representing the UK position internationally, enabling fair and safe competition, and providing support for innovation.
Good measurement practice results in a better quality of life, through improved trade and consumer protection, a healthier environment and more effective health and safety measures. It also improves the competitiveness of business both at home and in export.
The NMS invests approximately £60m a year in improving measurement in the UK.
