The OAS and the Inter-American Metrology System Sign Cooperation Agreement to Assist Sustainable Development

Metrology is a mechanism that facilitates domestic and international trade, production systems and global value chains with the participation of small and medium enterprises, in addition to being a key factor in technological development and innovation in high impact economic sectors. The establishment and implementation of national and international measures, norms and standards is one of the basic components to confirm the quality, safety and efficacy of materials, components and products, key to ensuring sustainable and inclusive development.

The Cooperation Agreement will serve as a starting point for implementing the collaboration between the OAS and the SIM in response to the mandates of the Plan of Action of Guatemala approved by the Ministers and High Authorities on Science and Technology of the Americas last March, and to continue to support improvements in infrastructure measures and standards in the Hemisphere necessary to support innovation and competitiveness.
