1 Laboratory-related matters

Central Institute of Metrology(CIM) under the State Administration
for Quality Management(SAQM) is the center of scientific research
and calibration in the field of metrology in DPR of Korea.

CIM is conducting the research to develop the new measurement
standards and reference instruments to meet the needs presented by
advanced national economy.

In the field of time and frequency measurement, the traceability
system of time by rubidium time standard was established, thus
maintaining the synchronization of time scales with UTC on the level
of 1 ㎲
     accuracy.

In the field of temperature measurement, the verification system of
infrared thermometers was established in the temperature interval of
100 – 2000℃ with the accuracy of 1%.

In the field of flow measurement, research is being conducted on the
water flowmeter standard for the laminar and turbulent flow.

In the field of force measurement, force measuring standard of 1kN is
to be designed and manufactured.
