World Metrology Day is an annual celebration of the signature of the Metre Convention on 20 May 1875 by representatives of seventeen nations. This effort established the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement and in industrial, commercial, and societal applications.
A variety of events are planned worldwide, including an ANSI (American National Standards Institute) in-person and virtual event titled “ANSI World Standards Week 2021-2022” (WSW). The ANSI WSW in-person event will be held in Washington, DC, on May 17-19, 2022. Click here for the full schedule.
World Standards Week is a premier annual gathering that brings together ANSI members and private and public-sector stakeholders from across the standards and conformity assessment communities to engage on priority issues and celebrate standardization achievements.
To protect health and safety during the pandemic, ANSI split WSW 2021 across fall 2021 (virtual events, proceedings available here) and spring 2022 (in-person/hybrid events, above).
A Fall 2022 WSW will also be held October 10-14 in Washington, DC.
