Searchable online database. The aim of the World Directory is to provide trade support institutions and exporters with references of addresses of organizations which can be contacted to obtain relevant information, inter alia, on standards, technical regulations, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, conformity assessment, accreditation and metrology. The world directory includes standard bodies, enquiry points (TBT/SPS), legal metrology organizations, quality organizations and accreditation bodies at national level. It also includes organizations with membership in ISO, IEC, OIML, ILAC, ITU and IAF; contact points for CODEX Alimentarius Commission, OIE and IPPC; and national measurement laboratories for countries signatories of the Metre Convention. Contact details of selected regional and international organizations dealing with standardization, quality, accreditation and metrology are also included.

This text provides an introduction to the two interdependent subjects of quality control system management and quality measurement techniques, enabling measurement and calibration procedures to be considered in the context of attaining quality assurance targets. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the author covers BSI, ISO and ECS standards and regulations and explores real-world calibration procedures and measuring instruments. A set of conversion tables between Imperial and SI units is also provided. The overall aim of the book is to serve as an accessible reference to the non-technical reader. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
