NMI's broad suite of measurement expertise is available to government, industry and the community through a wide variety of services delivered by our laboratories across Australia.
NMI offers a broad range of scientific and technical capabilities that address all sectors of measurement at the highest levels of precision and integrity.
On 1 July 2010, NMI took responsibility for trade measurement nationwide. NMI is now responsible for the full spectrum of measurement, from the peak primary standards of measurement to measurements made at the domestic trade level.
