Welcome toACRM HP

Securing reliability in measurement, test, and analysis has become the interest of priority to almost all entities involved in economic activities, including industry, governments, metrology communities, and the general public. The need to serve for such interest grows bigger and spreads over wide areas such as chemistry, health, food, and the environment, in particular.
Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) are known to be one of the key tools providing traceability and securing reliability in measurement, test, and analysis. Accordingly, regional cooperation between National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) for developing CRMs of high quality and global recognition is considered to be the significant and practical solution so as to address the traceability chain of CRMs, as well as the reduction of technical barriers to trade.
The National Institute of Metrology of the People’s Republic of China (NIM), the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS), and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, acting through the National Metrology Institute of Japan (NMIJ/AIST), agreed to create theAsian Collaboration on Reference Materials (ACRM)and to promote an integrated collaboration.

Objectives of ACRM

1. to develop an appropriate mechanism for a closer collaboration in the development and certification of CRMs;
2. to collaborate on the validation, characterization, production, supply and use of quality CRMs of world-wide acceptance and global competitiveness;
3. to join forces and share resources available to promote an integrated coordination of ACRM activities;
4. to promote technology transfer by exchange of researchers, technical information, materials and publication;
