BMTA NEWSLETTER – WINTER 2020

BMTA Newsletter Winter 2020

Welcome to the Winter issue of the BMTA Newsletter

It’s been a very busy time for our members over the past few months. The end of the year meant that Brexit transition was completed and that we are now no longer a member of the EU. Combined with the Testing, Measurement and Calibration industry being at the forefront of the Covid-19 issue, this has meant many of our members have been busier than ever.

As such, this issue is filled with articles and features on those subject matters. We look at the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 transition; the end of the Brexit transition from an accreditation perspective; conformity assessment post Brexit; and why the measurement infrastructure is so vital in the economic recovery from Covid-19.

To help us provide our BMTA members with useful information we would like your help to:

  • identify and share relevant topics;
  • provide research on new technologies or techniques;
  • let us know industry news;
  • promote events and training sessions;
  • inform us of publications you think may be of interest to your fellow BMTA members.
