On the 16 – 18 of September, 2014 in "VNIIMS" (Russia, Moscow) the 15th meeting of COOMET TC 2 "Legal Metrology" and the seminar on "Measuring systems in legal metrology" were held.

The event was attended by almost 30 experts from 11 COOMET member states (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Germany, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Slovakia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine), including the heads of VNIIMS.


The seminar, held on 16 - 17 of September, was devoted to the following issues:

  • The notion of measuring systems and related legislation
  • Basic principles and methods of metrological control of measuring systems
  • Smart meters and smart grids


In these blocks the most interesting and relevant topics of the seminar have been discussed, with use of specific examples as well.

The meeting of COOMET TC 2, headed by its Chairman Dr. Peter Ulbig (PTB) was held after the seminar.

The agenda included the following items:

  • Implementation of decisions of the previous TC 2 meeting, state of realization of TC 2 Work Program for 2013 - 2014
  • Situation in the field of legal metrology in COOMET member states
  • Membership of TC 2 and its Subcommittees
  • Activities of the Subcommittees, implementation of TC 2 scientific projects
  • Cooperation with OIML, etc.

These issues caused the active discussions between participants, which confirm their interest in the development of legal metrology in the framework of COOMET cooperation and further exchange of experience between countries and institutions. All members of TC 2 and seminar participants noted the crucial importance of the topics discussed and a high organizational level.
