Role of UME

 To establish and maintain national measurement


reference standards in accordance with the definition of
basic and derivative SI Units

 To ensure the traceability of national measurement


reference standards to international standards

 To establish a national measurement system and provide


services to the laboratories within this system in terms of
calibration, training, consultancy and other mechanisms

11
Role of UME

 To contribute to research and development in the area


of measurement techniques, calibration and basic
metrology at an international level

 To increase the quality of production in Turkey by


providing the measurement infrastructure through the
national measurement system

 To represent Turkey at an international level in the field


of metrology

12
Main
Tasks
 Development and maintenance of an effective
metrological infrastructure as required for Turkey’s
accession to the European Union
 Participation in the conduct of international comparisons
to support international recognition of UME, and to
establish the traceability of national measurement
standards to international reference standards.
 Achievement of the highest level of equivalence of
national measurement reference standards with respect
to the implementation of the MRA
 Conduct research in the field of Fundamental Metrology

UME’s Future: Strategic Planning Activities
Started in 2006
Trigger: Requirements of Law No. 5018 on Public Fiscal
Management and Control.

Coordinated by team consisting of 17 people


Team members were selected among volunteers after special
training
Strategic planning activities were described in the relevant
procedures within QMS

24
Strategic Planning Activities

Actions Carried Out:

• Redefinition of institutional mission and vision


• Performing SWOT and PESTS analysis
• Defining of institutional strategic aims
• Drafting of strategic actions toward strategic aims
• Monitoring of the institutional performance through
objective and measurable performance indicators

Future Plans

• Gradually skipping the routine calibration work and


setting-up the priorities to R&D projects
• Closer cooperation with universities and other research
organizations
• Further support to the Legal Metrology infrastructure of
Turkey through ensuring the traceability of the
measurement units used in trade
• Conduction of various activities for increasing of
awareness of metrology in the society
