About the National Measurement Institute
The NMI plays a critical role in the Australian economy. NMI’s leadership of the measurement system ensures that Australian measurements are internationally comparable, traceable and recognised, in particular by developing and maintaining national measurement standards and administering the regulatory framework for ‘trade measurement’ (measurements determining commercial value). NMI also contributes to the health and safety of Australians, by developing cutting edge measurement methods to support management of food and environmental concerns.
