Facts for Prelims

OIML

News: Recently, India has become the 13th country that can issue OIML (International Organization of Legal Metrology) Certificates.

Context:
• It allows domestic manufacturers in India to have their weighing and measuring instruments tested within the country and then sell them in the international market.

What is OIML?
• The OIML was established in 1955 and headquartered in Paris.
• It is an international standard-setting body that develops model regulations, standards and related documents for use by legal metrology authorities and industry.
• It plays a crucial role in harmonising national laws and regulations on the performance of measuring instruments like clinical thermometers, alcohol breath analysers, radar speed measuring instruments, ship tanks found at ports, and petrol dispensing units.

Significance:
• It benefits indigenous manufacturers as they can export their weighing and measuring instruments worldwide without incurring additional testing fees, resulting in cost savings.
• India can support foreign manufacturers by issuing OIML pattern approval certificates through its certified RRSLs, generating foreign exchange through fees and services.
