Autumn 2021 Newsletter

 

Welcome to the Autumn issue of the BMTA Newsletter

Our theme for this issue is the 4th Industrial Revolution. We have a feature article from Hugh Taylor at UKAS on what the Revolution is and how it is impacting UKAS activities. Daniel Povey at NPL also discusses digitalisation and the development and implementation of digital solutions.

Andy Morris of NPL, Gareth Edwards, NPL’s AMPI Programme Director and Tony Bannan, President of AMPI tell us about AMPI - the Advanced Machinery and Productivity Institute.

Wayne Terry, Chief Executive of ABCB, explores the lessons learned from remote auditing during the lockdown and looks at the growing evidence of support for a blended approach to auditing, in what he believes will inevitably be the new normal for CABs.

Jeff Llewellyn, President of the BMTA, takes a look at Inward Processing and its impact on the metrology and testing industry post-Brexit. In this article, we also publish the letters that have gone back and forth to Government officials regarding this issue.

Our BMTA Council Member article this issue profiles Dr Gavin Davies. Find out what being a Council member means to him.
