The Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, partners with the 7th Spanish Metrology Congress being organized by the Centro Español de Metrología from 26 to 29 September at the "Lienzo Norte" Congress and Exhibit Centre in Ávila.
Under the slogan "Metrology in the era of digitization and sustainability", the Congress, which will be held in a hybrid format (in-person and online), will have plenary sessions, parallel thematic sessions, round tables, poster sessions and exhibits of instrumentation and applications.
The UNE, which is part of the Organizing Committee for this Congress, will take part in the Round Table on "Quality Infrastructure" on 28 September from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m., and which will feature the CEO of the Spanish National Accreditation Body (ENAC), Beatriz Rivero, the Director of CEM, José Ángel Robles, and the CEO of UNE, Javier García. The round table will be coordinated by José Manuel Prieto, Deputy Director of Industrial Safety and Quality at the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism;
The CEM, ENAC and UNE are the strategic partners that comprise the three main pillars of the quality infrastructure in Spain. The joint work of these organizations promotes the competitiveness and efficiency of our business sectors, and of our economic fabric in general. As a result, they are able to work closely in order to improve and develop this infrastructure that provides assurance to the public.
Metrology and standardization are two essential activities for the quality infrastructure in Spain, and it is to this end that the CEM and UNE are working in such close collaboration.
Through this alliance, the CEM actively participates in the UNE Metrology and Calibration Committee (CTN 82), which is vital in the publication of the highest quality standards in this field, standards that facilitate the essential measurement activity, in accordance with international standards and best practices.
The UNE provides the CEM with the necessary support for the optimum performance of its functions. In addition, the close collaboration between the two bodies enhances training and promotes the dissemination of standardization at conferences and events, as well as in international cooperation projects.
Metrology in the automotive industry and sustainable mobility; the digital transformation in metrology; metrology and social welfare; advanced metrology; metrological developments; the challenges of legal metrology, or the quality infrastructure, are just some of the contents that will be addressed during the congress.
