The BMTA (British Measurement and Testing Association) was formed to develop and represent the interests of the UK’s measurement and testing industry. 

The BMTA provides a forum for the exchange of views on topics relating to measurements across all technical disciplines and promotes education and training in measurement and testing as well as identifying common measurement problems and promoting their solutions. The BMTA also represents the European interests of the industry by arranging representation on EUROLAB via the EUROLAB UK consortium.

The updated BMTA website has a host of new capabilities for members, including training updates, a live jobs board – free for members – and editable member profiles. We also post regular training discounts and special offers. Our website is very popular, with over 1,000 visitors on average each month, so updating your profile and providing regular content is a great way to get your company or organisation in front of the people who matter.


Membership of the BMTA is open to all laboratory-based organisations associated with the measurement and testing industry. Membership fees are worked out based on the size of your organisation so that even the smallest organisation is able to afford membership. Benefits include access to informative resources, dedicated trade listings and jobs boards, networking opportunities, member discounts and the opportunity to influence legislation and make a real change in the industry.
