The International Organisation of Legal Metrology (OIML) promotes the harmonisation of these government measurement tools and seeks uniformity, where appropriate, in the case of national standards. The OIML advances a normalised measurement system, i.e., equal shape, size, label, packaging requirements, etc. for similar goods, in an effort to improve the international trading environment. The OIML seeks to eliminate technical barriers to trade resulting from national and regional differences due to their measurement systems.
The FIVS OIML Liaison Group monitors issues involving measurements (e.g., legal metrics, labelling) that are of interest to the alcohol beverage industry. OIML officials have presented on legal metrological developments at recent FIVS conferences.
If you would like to become involved with this Liaison Group, or need access to the FIVS-Alive online working platform, please contact the Secretariat. Please note that you need to be logged-in to your FIVS account to view the documents posted in the members only section below.
