About Center for Measurement Standards

"Metrology for Quality, Standards for Harmonization” is the Center for Measurement Standards’ motto. The basic mission of the Center from the beginning has been to establish and maintain the national measurement standards. Based on the experiences and capabilities accumulated over the years with the primary standards conforming to the world’s, the Center keeps on doing R&D on instrumentation and sensing, smart sensing, medical device evaluation, and energy and environment metrology. The core technologies of those fields are developed to help the industry win in the international market competition with advanced technology and quality assurance.
