Trade measurement refers to all transactions in which the price of the commodities or goods is based on measurement of quantity or quality. The primary purpose of a trade measurement system in Australia is to ensure that the pricing of traded goods is based on accurate measurement. Trade measurement covers both business-to-business transactions and business-to-consumer transactions.
Our policy aims are to provide an efficient and effective national trade measurement system across Australia for the community, business and government; and to provide confidence in all aspects of trade measurement through a unified, national system.
Our objectives are to maintain a high level of general awareness and transparency in trade measurement transactions; to ensure an effective compliance framework; and to continually improve trade measurement.
NMI routinely consults on the development and review of regulations, standards and test procedures. Current consultations are available under Public Consultations on this website.
Our mission is to enable Australia to trade fairly and equitably in every transaction based on measurement through the administration of the National Measurement Act 1960.
As the national trade measurement regulator we aim at all times to provide high quality service. The Trade Measurement Service Charter is our public commitment to customers and stakeholders on what you can expect from us in service standards and delivery.
