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.
