The A*STAR’s National Metrology Centre (NMC) is the national measurement institute of Singapore, dedicated to advancing measurement science for an innovative and competitive economy
NMC establishes, develops, maintains and disseminates the national measurement standards traceable to the International System of Units, providing key support to a wide spectrum of industry.
Achieving the nation’s highest level of physical measurement through close collaboration with leading national and international organisation.
With a multidisciplinary team of experienced scientists and engineers and state-of-the-art facilities, NMC provides dedicated services to industry partners to meet their specific needs.
NMC believes in working in close collaboration with industry partners, to create values for them and fuel growth for the industry.
Since 1994, Singapore has been a member of the Metre Convention, an international diplomatic treaty on world metrology. NMC establishes primary measurement standards as defined by the SI under the Metre Convention, to ensure compatibility of these measurements standards with the international system.
As part of the international metrology community, NMC actively promotes and collaborates with national metrology institutes in the region through the Asia Pacific Metrology Programme (APMP), and other institutes worldwide through the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) and the Consultative Committees of CIPM.
